Childbirth preferences before and after exposure to birth stories in Australian women
Data collected via online survey of a sample of 426 nulligravid women aged 18 to 42 years old. During completion of the online survey respondents were randomly allocated to one of the four conditions created by exposure to written birth stories varying in childbirth method (vaginal or caesarean) and satisfaction with the method (satisfied or dissatisfied). Childbirth preference, childbirth fear and childbirth self-efficacy (outcome expectancy and self-efficacy expectancy) were measured before and after exposure to the birth stories.
This study received approval by the QUT Human Research Ethics Committee on 25th of July 2018, (Approval Number 1800000649).
