What Matters To You Survey 2014

Earlier this year, AIMS Ireland invited women who had 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 was online, self-selecting and ran from March until the end of June 2014. The survey was 100 questions long with a combination of multiple choice and comment boxes. It took approximately 30 minutes to complete. Questions covered 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 were completely anonymous. Responses to the survey are currently being analysed and we will be publishing the results of the survey in Autumn 2014.

We would hugely appreciate so many women taking the time to take part. The 2014 What Matters to YOU Survey will be the biggest consumer survey of maternity services in Ireland ever undertaken.
