Louise Roth is the PI on a research team that raised $3,000 on indiegogo.com to fund the Maternity Support Survey. The survey asks doulas, childbirth educators, and labor and delivery nurses from the United States and Canada about their knowledge and attitudes toward current childbirth practices, technologies and support. It is the first study to explore three different, but related, occupations in terms of their approach to maternal support and care. The survey opened in November 2012 and currently has over 2000 completed responses.
The Maternity Support Survey owes special thanks to our corporate sponsor, Traxda, a local Tucson manufacturing company.
