This is a questionnaire in simple English. It is shorter and easier to read.
We are delighted that you are taking part in our survey.
The survey is part of a study called HebAB.NRW – Obstetric care by midwives in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Your answers are very important to us. In this way, we can find out about your experiences with midwives.
There are no right or wrong answers. You need about 25 to 35 minutes to answer.
The questionnaire has several parts.
First, we ask what experiences you have had with midwives: during pregnancy, at the birth and after the birth.
There are also questions about classes and whether you were satisfied.
In addition, we have several questions about you, such as your school education and your language skills.
All the answers are treated anonymously. That means nobody can find out what answers you gave. Example: we can find out how many women were satisfied with the care. But we cannot find out which women they are.
Always think of your youngest child when answering. Perhaps you have had twins (or multiples) – the questionnaire still says “child”. Please answer anyway.
Thank you for taking part!
Sincerely, your project team HebAB.NRW – mothers’ survey
