What was the BESt survey?

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.

Over 7,000 women participated - one of the largest studies in Australia. The findings were recently collated which were shared at our Live Event!
