We are a group of around 100 academics, midwives, doctors, policy makers and healthcare specialists. We are working on a large research project funded by the European Union and it is our task to find out about best practise in maternity care across Europe. In this survey, we are trying to find out about women's views and experiences relating to maternity care in a number of different European countries. This information will be used by our research group (COST Action IS0907) to identify areas of best practice in maternity care across Europe. If you would like to help us, please fill in our very short online survey. There are a maximum of 20 questions and these should take less than 10 minutes to answer.

This is a general survey examining the provision of healthcare across Europe. If you have experienced negative care during childbirth, you may wish to discuss this further with your healthcare provider or an independent support network. Please contact us for a list of support networks in your country.
