Babies Born Better is an international online survey on childbirth experiences. It is an output of the COST Action IS 0907 "Childbirth Cultures, Concerns, and Consequences: Creating a dynamic EU framework for optimal maternity care" and it is currently coordinated by an International Steering Committee.
The survey is available in more than 23 languages, having obtained around 40,000 responses in each edition. In Portugal, data is managed and analysed by a multidisciplinary team of researchers from the University Institute of Lisbon: Mário Santos (CIES-IUL), Helena Carvalho (CIES-IUL), Marta Matos (CIS-IUL), Sónia Pintassilgo (CIES-IUL), and Dulce Neves (CIES-IUL).
