About Improving Me

Improving me is a Women’s and Children’s Services Partnership aiming to improve the experience of women and children across Cheshire and Merseyside. The main goals of the partnership are:

  • empowering women to take control in decisions about the care they receive to better meet their needs and preferences.
  • Engaging in decision making about the services that are offered by working together through collaboration, co-operation, and co-production.
  • deliver safer, more personalised care for all women and every baby, improve outcomes, and reduce inequalities. 

The Webinar programme is themed around discussing key health priorities to improve women’s health and focus on key areas outlined in the LMS (Local Maternity System)

The following webinars are planned for 2021-2022. Full details will be shared in the Improving Me website and then posted on the Improving Me event pages approximately six weeks in advance of webinar presentations.

    Vitamin D

    Vitamin D plays a vital role in bone health as it reduces the risk of bone fracture, promotes calcium absorption, and is needed for bone growth. In the UK, epidemiological studies have shown evidence that lower Vitamin D status is highly prevalent, making it a public health issue we all need to support. Pregnant people may be at particular risk of not having enough Vitamin D.

    We will discuss with a panel of experts GPs and obstetricians about the importance of vitamin D during the perinatal period.

    Continuity of Carer

    In 2016, a national review of maternity services in England (National Maternity Review -Better Births, 2016) recommended that all Maternity services in England should become safer, more personalised, kinder, professional and more family friendly. The review called this model of care "continuity of carer" and recommended that women should receive it from a named midwife or small team of 4-6 midwives. It is expected that the ongoing transformation of maternity services in C&M to reflect the national recommendations, will ensure the care you receive is safe and based on a relationship of mutual trust and respect between yourself, your midwife, and your obstetrician.

    We are delighted to welcome Continuity of Carer Leads across Cheshire & Merseyside to discuss what they do and how they do this more personalised care.
