Each year in the ACT, over 5,500 women give birth, so maternal care is an important part of our local health services. It has been approximately 10 years since the examination of maternity services in the ACT where women’s voices and experiences were directly collected to inform the development of maternity services and policy in Canberra. This report summarises the results of the consultation, and provides the feedback and the narratives of 171 women who had given birth for the first time in the ACT or Queanbeyan. These 171 mothers were asked about their experiences of 3 areas – pregnancy, giving birth and post-natal care.
