Promotional abstract: This survey was developed in the North-East and North Cumbria, UK, and aims to establish women’s preferences around student midwives’ contribution to their maternity care. The findings will be used to inform future models of practice learning, with a particular emphasis on continuity of carer. Questions focused on women’s views and experiences, and the survey was distributed to maternity and parenting groups across the region via social media. 134 responses were received. Analysis shows an overwhelmingly positive response to student midwife care, acknowledging the strength of relationships but also the shared learning between women and students. The survey demonstrates the value of seeking service user views in the development of women-centred practice learning models in Midwifery.
