Survey of Women's Experiences of Maternity Care in Northern Ireland

Published on Tuesday, 24 May 2016 Tweet

Building on the successful National Maternity Surveys in England, NPEU Social Scientist Maggie Redshaw has collaborated with colleagues from the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen's University in Belfast on a Survey of Women's Experiences of Care in Northern Ireland. The survey report, the first of its kind in Northern Ireland, details the experiences of 2,722 women who gave birth between October 2014 and December 2016. Comparisons with the English National Maternity Surveys show that the experiences of women in Northern Ireland and in England are broadly similar, but that overall women in Northern Ireland were less likely to feel involved in decision making about their care and were more satisfied with their care after the birth of their baby. Read the report.
