Story

A woman’s relationship with her maternity providers is vitally important. Not only are these encounters the vehicle for essential lifesaving health services, but women’s experiences with caregivers can empower and comfort or inflict lasting damage and emotional trauma. Either way, women’s memories of their childbearing experiences stay with them for a lifetime and are often shared with other women, contributing to a climate of confidence or doubt around childbirth- White Ribbon Alliance

The Deaf Nest Project is a vision of maternity services where every deaf parent has full access to services, an excellent childbirth and pregnancy experience and the information to make informed choices. The Deaf Nest project aims to improve deaf users’ personal experience, equality of access, choice and control over maternity care. Pregnancy and motherhood are major life events for all women, not least for deaf women. Nevertheless, they need to be accepted and supported in their choice to become parents and to be cared for and treated like every other woman.

The Deaf Nest believes that understanding, respecting and embedding diversity in maternity care has the potential to make a real difference to deaf women’s experience of pregnancy and childbirth. The deaf world in relation to pregnancy is little know, and there is no one to promote and protect its values and views except deaf people themselves. Additionally, deaf women and hearing impaired mothers are a very small minority among the many thousands of hearing mothers that midwives see every day. Despite that, demand is no less urgent because it is not widespread- after all each mother is an individual and midwives must adopt their care accordingly.

Followed the Maternity Midwifery Festival conference in London on the 13th of February we are embarking on a new fundraising campaign to raise money to support deaf parents and organise deaf awareness training for maternity health professionals. The campaign will last for 365 days and everyday everyone will be invited to do one random act of kindness. We would like to not only to raise money but also encourage people to be kinder to each other.

We invite you to participate! Everyday a new deed will be posted on this page and we would love to hear from you! Please fee to add comments and send us pictures while being kind.
