Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System (BLMK ICS) has commissioned Healthwatch Bedford Borough to support their aim of improving outcomes for women and other people who are thinking about starting a family, by improving pre-pregnancy health, and to conduct an independent survey for people who may be thinking about starting a family, or extending their current family, to inform their work in this area.

The BLMK ICS aims to ensure optimum health of women and other people who are thinking about starting a family, prior to pregnancy, by providing pre-pregnancy education, advice and support in the community.

Your feedback will help to ensure the appropriate pre-pregnancy health advice and information is being offered to women and other people who are thinking about starting a family to better meet their expectations.
