The majority of women who gave birth in February 2015 had a better maternity experience overall to those who gave birth the same time the previous year, a new survey has found.

The national survey from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) of more than 20,000 women, across 133 NHS trusts in England, put the results down to improvement in access to midwives, choice of where to give birth and the quality of information given.

Being able to see the same midwife, being offered the opportunity to give birth in a midwife led unit and being spoken to in a way they could understand, scored top.

Other important areas mums praised were being treated with dignity and respect, cleaner wards, toilets and bathrooms, as well as better support for breastfeeding their newborn.
