Understanding the Factors Shaping Pregnant People’s Experiences Choosing and Accessing a Maternity Care Provider in the Champlain Region
Did you miss this webinar?
In Ontario, supporting “a system of care that provides women and their families with equitable choice in birth environment and provider” (PCMCH & MOHLTC, 2017, p.33) has been identified as one of the central objectives of the Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health’s Low Risk Maternal Newborn Strategy. This project - which was conducted as a partnership between researchers at the University of Ottawa and the Champlain Maternal Newborn Regional Program - aimed to determine whether or not these provincial policies had translated into the levels of access, awareness, and resourcing required to afford pregnant people the opportunity, ability and propensity exercise autonomous choice of provider within the local maternity care system in Ontario’s Champlain Region. 
To achieve this objective, this project involved two complementary activities: (1) quantitative geospatial mapping to assess pregnant people’s access to the full range of maternity care providers across the Region, and (2) a series of focus group and individual interviews with parents, providers and policy-makers to explore the individual, organizational, and system-level factors that are enabling or restricting access and choice within the local maternity care system. This webinar will present key findings from all components of this project and introduce a framework synthesizing the structural conditions that would be necessary to equitably support pregnant people’s access to and choice of a maternity care provider.
