CanCOVID Speaker Series
Increased use of birth interventions in response to COVID-19. Findings from a Canada-wide qualitative study.
Dr. Kathleen Rice, Canada Research Chair in the Medical Anthropology of Primary Care, Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine, McGill University
Tuesday, June 29th, 2021, 4:00 - 4:30pm EDT
The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new pressures and concerns for pregnancies and deliveries in Canada, as well as for the perinatal healthcare providers. Join us as Dr. Rice shares the results from her in-depth qualitative interviews with women who have given birth during the pandemic and with perinatal care providers. Dr. Rice will also discuss the overall scaling back of perinatal care alongside the heavy use of interventions (e.g., induction of labour, cesarian section) in response to pandemic stresses and uncertainties.
