Women who are pregnant and breastfeeding, or who are planning to get pregnant, need information about their medicines. To be able to develop better information and tools for women in the future, we developed a survey to understand what kind of information women need, and how they prefer to receive that information.
During Safe Motherhood Week, we promoted the survey through our campaign, and with the support of our partners, including Women Deliver, we succeeded in bringing over 377 clicks to the survey which collected over 570 responses. The survey confirms the need for better tools and information for women on medicine use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and provided important insights to inform the partners in the ConcePTION project. This survey will be followed by a larger study in 2020 targeting women, doctors, midwives and pharmacists.
