This is what one of my absolute favorite online resources for pregnant women, Childbirth Connection, wants to know. The organization IS LOOKING FOR PREGNANT WOMEN AND NEW MOMS (ie: you!) to fill out a survey about “how women use the internet to find pregnancy and birth information and support decision making.”
Childbirth Connection provides women (“consumers”) with tons of helpful breakdowns of available research. The organization has another mission and that is to “transform maternity care.” This survey is a part of that effort.
So, if you are pregnant or were within the last two years and use the internet (hello?) you can go HERE and take the survey. (You can win a $50 Target gift card.)
I’ve long used Childbirth Connection as a resource for all kinds of questions such as: will a c-section do more or less damage to my vagina than a vaginal birth? What’s the cost/benefit analysis of VBAC vs. second c-section?
Make your opinions known and help this great organization work to improve care for all mothers! Pass it on.
Here’s a bit more info from their blog:
“As Childbirth Connection and our partner, the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making, embark on our Shared Decision Making Maternity Initiative, we are seeking to learn more about how women use the internet to find pregnancy and birth information and support decision making…. The survey closes August 31.”
