Birthing behaviours and practices in response to COVID-19 aims to identify how women alter their birthing practices and behaviour in response to COVID-19. My hope is that my research will contribute to the understanding of our response to a novel pathogen, and also contribute health and success of women giving birth during a global pandemic.
This project has received funding support from the VIU Covid-19 Grant.
Update: All data has been collected and analysed. Thanks so much to the great team of student researchers at VIU, and especially the co-author, Emma Ferris.
Thank you to all the participants who shared your experiences so that we could all better understand how COVID-19 impacted pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period.
