Good evening, it's been a full weekend for our family, with a night away camping with friends, a big fire, waaay too much food and lots of singing and playing instruments and kids playing until very late. We're ready for an early night.
But I have some questions that have been milling around in my mind for some time now,
.....so I've decided to put together a survey (my first ever) for pregnant women.
I'm curious to see if the questions in this survey get to the core of what influences pregnant women in their birthing decisions.
My hope is that the information gleaned from women's responses will guide me in the content for a series of radio documentaries relating to preparing for childbirth. It is important for our show to be always guided by our audience. For this particular project, I want to include the voices of women, followed by academics and other experts who address the issues the women raise.
I am keen to hear from all pregnant women regardless of their birthing philosophy or choices. I do admit, however, that I am particularly keen to hear from women who are planning a hospital birth.
As I mentioned above, this survey is my first, and I'm starting out with just the free version of the survey tool, which keeps my questions to a maximum of 10 questions. I actually feel that's a good start though, and it will keep me succinct in my questions.
So, this process of surveying pregnant women will be an organic one, much like pregnancy and parenting really. And it will be guided by experience, ie how it is received by women. I thank you for your patience with this new endeavour of mine as I feel my way forward with it.
What you can be sure of is my motivation, which is to reach into the heart of women and provide information that empowers and inspires them.
You can also be sure that all information given in the surveys will be kept anonymous - and will be received with the deepest gratitude.
Please share this survey with all pregnant women you know!
warm wishes for a peaceful evening, Sally
