Birth on My Terms Project - Invitation to Contribute


This post is on behalf of Theresa Morris, lead researcher for the Birth on My Terms Project
Were you coerced, forced or pressured to have a procedure(s) during labor and birth?




Such procedures may include: epidural, episiotomy, induction of labor, augmentation of contractions, IV medication or fluids, cesarean section, Pitocin, antibiotics or other medications, electronic monitoring, movement or lack of movement, or pushing position.

If so, we would be interested in learning about your experience.

We are conducting a study that examines the experiences of women who have been forced or coerced to have a procedure, including cesarean sections, during labor or birth. 

If you have had such an experience and are willing to share your experience, please click on the link at the bottom of this post. You will be directed to our secure and confidential survey site. 

The survey will include questions about you, your reproductive history and questions about the pregnancy, labor, and birth that involved a forced or coerced procedure(s). Participants will also be asked about any consequences of having the forced or coerced procedure. 

Completion of the survey is expected to take about 30 minutes. 

Participants names will not be used in any publication of results.
