    Default Women's experience's of accessing and using water immersion for labour and/or birth

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Megan Cooper and I am a Researcher and Lecturer in Midwifery at the University of South Australia.


    I am currently undertaking a research project looking women’s experiences of accessing and using water immersion for labour and/or birth.

    Who can participate?

    • Women who live in Australia AND
    • Are currently pregnant AND/OR
    • Have given birth
    Note: Even if you haven't used water immersion, your contribution to this study is valuable.

    For the purposes of this study, water immersion is defined as:


    Immersion in a pool or bath of water for any stage of labour or birth. It does not include the use of a shower.

    This study includes two different surveys:

    • Survey one is for women who are pregnant and/or have never used water immersion for labour and/or birth
    • Survey two is for women who have used water immersion for labour and/or birth

    The survey link is below:

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Water_immersion_access

    This study has been approved by the University of South Australia's Human Research Ethics Committee.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any further information relating to this study.
