Tornado warnings in my immediate area preclude the writing of an extensive post today!
I wanted to mention two research surveys currently in progress:
A Birth Choices survey examining how pregnant women who participate in online communities make decisions about where they give birth and whom they have in attendance. Participants shuld be pregnant or have given birth in the last 12 months and meet one or more of the following criteria: women who have chosen to give birth either at a birth center, attended by a family physician, or unassisted.
A Beyond the Baby survey studying women's birth experiences and the ways in which women feel impacted by these experiences Participating women must: have given birth within the last three years, be 25 years old, or older, have a high school education, or beyond.
