Childbirth Connection is a non-profit organization that aims to "improve the quality and value of maternity care through consumer engagement and health system transformation" (from their Mission Statement).  Today they released the results of a U.S. survey of mothers who gave birth in a one year period (July 1, 2011- June 31, 2012) to singles in hospitals only. 

Quote:
Initiative is devoted to understanding experiences and perspectives of childbearing women and using this knowledge to improve maternity policy, practice, education, and research. Listening to Mothers surveys enable us to compare actual experiences of childbearing women and newborns with mothers’ preferences, as well as with evidence-based care, optimal outcomes, and protections granted by law. Identified gaps present opportunities to improve conditions for this large and important population during this crucial period.

 

Their Facebook page highlighted and graphed some of the results like this one below showing a clear correlation between mothers who felt pressured to have intervention and the resulting percentage of those who had intervention.

They also shared some quotes from mothers that provided feedback from their survey

Check out the rest of the highlights on the Childbirth Connection Facebook page and read the full report of the survey here.

 

Do you think these types of surveys - going directly to the mothers - will help better the maternity care in the U.S.?
