The internet is full of incorrect and confusing information about birth. How can you tell what online childbirth information is reliable?

A research team headed by Dr. Michael Klein is investigating a simple online method to help women evaluate childbirth information on the internet.

You’re invited to participate in this study if you are a woman who is:

  • currently pregnant
  • approaching your first birth
  • expecting a normal birth

The study will take about 2 hours of your time. Participants will meet at SFU or Douglas College sometime in April 2012. Pregnant women often find this type of activity valuable.

Participation includes a complimentary nutritious snack and non-alcoholic beverage.
