Birth Reflections Service

Birth Reflections is a service that is available to all women that have received maternity care within University Hospitals of Leicester. It is a listening and information giving service ran by dedicated midwives.

The service helps women and their families understand and reflect on their birth experience, whilst improving effective communication between women and the maternity service.

The Birth Reflections team can offer further support with psychological referral. They help identify symptoms of anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress and work closely with the perinatal and maternal mental health teams to support you.

The Birth Reflections team provides feedback to the maternity service to help make improvements. They confidentially report the most common concerns of women and their partners so that changes can be made.

It is really important that your voices and feedback are heard. This feedback is welcomed to help improve care in the future.

You can refer to the Birth Reflections Service by telephone or email:

birthreflections@uhl-tr.nhsuk     –   please include your full name, date of birth and telephone number

Tel: 07876476003      –    please include your full name and date of birth.

Referrals are accepted for any woman that has had a baby, having a baby or is considering another pregnancy.
