Health Care Leaders to Unveil Findings From National Survey of New Mothers That Reveal Deficient Maternity Care Quality and Need for More Consumer Engagement and Shared Decision Making

This Thursday 1-2 pm ET, you are invited to speak with national health care leaders about findings from Listening To Mothers III — the third in a series of major national studies that examines women’s maternity experiences from before birth through the postpartum period. Among many other findings, the survey reveals the overuse of risky procedures and the fact that many women feel pressured to undergo them.

Listening to Mothers III is the third in a series of landmark, national studies that poll American women about their maternity experiences. This online press conference will highlight new findings about the American maternity experience, including:

  • Exposure of women and babies to the overuse of risky procedures, and underuse of beneficial practices;
  • Women’s experience of pressure to undergo consequential and costly procedures;
  • How informed women are about the risks of those procedures;
  • Failure of the health system to provide shared decision-making processes for major decisions;
  • Trends across the three national Listening to Mothers surveys.

Leading national health experts representing clinical quality improvement, employer, and consumer perspectives will discuss major findings. The in-depth report describes many experiences from before pregnancy through pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Harris Interactive conducted the survey of 2,400 women who gave birth from July 2011 through June 2012.
