Over 7,000 women participated in one of the largest studies ever in Australia
Birth Time and Western Sydney University collaborated in a Nation wide survey that was made available in seven different languages, post the launch of the award winning film, Birth Time: the documentary.
It became known as 'The BESt Survey', standing for, The Birth Experience Study Survey.
Women who had given birth in Australia in the last 5 years were invited to participate with the research seeking to understand the positive and negative birthing experiences women are having in Australia.
With over 7,000 women participating in the BESt survey, it is now one of the largest studies ever done in Australia.
