Another important read

Another important read

Hopefully you spent some time searching through the Childbirth Connection website yesterday.  In case you didn’t, I wanted to highlight another important document available from that sight.  It is the Listening to Mothers survey, and if you have never read it you need to.

The Listening to Mother’s survey asks a cohort of women who recently gave birth about their birth experience.  From this data we are able to get an idea about the real rates of different interventions for childbirth, and how their birth experience impacted their lives.

This may be a pay for download, it was when I got it, but the data is definitely worth it.  I believe there are some excerpts or highlight papers that are available free.
