Ways to Engage




Residents of the Ottawa Region who are pregnant or have given birth within the past two years are invited to participate in a study entitled Understanding the Workforce, Organizational, and System-Level Factors Shaping Access and Autonomy in the Champlain Region’s Maternity Care System conducted by Caroline Chamberland-Rowe, under the supervision of Professor Ivy Lynn Bourgeault.


The purpose of this study, which will serve to inform CMNRP’s ongoing capacity planning initiative, is to explore the workforce, organizational, and system-level factors that are enabling or restricting 1) pregnant people’s access to the full range of maternity care providers across the Champlain Region, and 2) their autonomy in choosing a maternity care provider.


This study will help decision-makers understand what action could be undertaken to develop a maternity care system that is better aligned with pregnant people’s choices and needs.


Should you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to attend an hour-long focus group discussion with other local families. Participants can join this conversation in-person or by videoconference. Participants will receive a $20 President’s Choice gift card in recognition of their contribution to this project.



If you are interested in participating in this focus group, or have any questions or concerns, please contact Caroline Chamberland-Rowe by email at ccham060@uottawa.ca.
