Take Our Survey

AIMS Ireland is inviting women who have had a baby in Ireland in the last five years to take part in a national survey evaluating women’s experiences and choices of birth. The 2014 What Matters to YOU Survey is for women who have given birth in Ireland between 2010 and 2014.

The survey is online, self-selecting and will run until the end of June 2014. The survey is 100 questions long with a combination of multiple choice and comment boxes. It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Questions covers topics such as your antenatal care, information you received, your experience of the labour and birth process and care and information you received post partum. All responses received are completely anonymous. We will publish the results of the survey later in 2014.

We would hugely appreciate if you could take the opportunity to take part. To take the survey, click here
