A play inspired by conversations with families during a province wide study on pregnancy and childbirth in British Columbia
“Over the past 5 years, the Women’s Health Research Institute partnered with the Birth Place Lab and communities across British Columbia to collect information about their preferences and experiences during pregnancy and childbirth. In the Changing Childbirth in BC Study, people filled out an online survey or joined a focus group. They spoke of caring, supportive, and exceptional care, and also of discrimination, disrespect, and mistreatment that they encountered in the health care system.
The Changing Childbirth in BC Study invites you to a performance inspired by the thousands of stories families shared about their experiences of pregnancy and birth. Afterwards, join us for a Talk Back session! Bring your ideas on how to improve health care for parents and babies in BC.”
