The Birth Survey
The Birth Survey is grassroots volunteer community that is "dedicated to the promotion of advancing transparency in maternity care." The Birth Survey shares honest, objective information about birthing caregivers and settings. The survey is filled out by women who share their own personal birthing experiences and essentially rate their maternity care, their OB or midwife, and the place where they gave birth (hospital, birth center). By viewing various reports, you can get an accurate idea of, for instance, a particular hospital's intervention rate. One of the primary goals of The Birth Survey is to help women make informed choices regarding their birthing care. The survey only takes approximately 30 minutes. Plus, if you pass this information on, you have the opportunity to win various prizes!
