A new study published in the June issue of Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada shows that pregnant women aren't really prepared to make their own childbirth decisions. Study:
- 1,318 participants competed a questionnaire
- 42.6% were under an obstetrician's care
- 29.3% were under a family physician's care
- 28.1% were under a registered midwife's care
- the women were mainly "well-educated, middle-class."
- Women with obstetricians were "more favourable to the use of birth technology and less supportive of women’s roles in their own delivery."
- Women with midwives were "less favourable to the use of technology at delivery and more supportive of women’s roles."
- Women with family physicians had opinions in the middle.
