Abstract:

Childbirth educators can use Childbirth Connection's Listening to Mothers II survey as a resource for updating their curriculum and teaching methods. The survey reveals that issues surrounding a woman's choice of care providers, her nutrition and fitness habits, and her possible experiences with depression and abuse may not be addressed sufficiently in a traditional, third-trimester, Lamaze class and may need greater emphasis in early pregnancy. The survey's results also show that women turn primarily to books, friends and family, health-care providers, and the Internet for information on pregnancy and birth. Suggestions for incorporating new sources of information and Internet technologies into Lamaze classes are discussed.
