What to Record
Please tell a short story about an experience that stands out to you from the same pregnancy or birth that you reported on when completing the RESPCCT survey. This could describe an interaction with a caregiver, or an idea about how others may be able to learn from your experiences.
You can also share your suggestions for how we can improve care for families in Canada.
