Are you an obstetric care provider? We want to hear from you!

The 'Optimal Caesarean Rates Survey' seeks the views of obstetricians on the optimal caesarean rate among different groups of deliveries. The debate around “optimal” caesarean rates is ongoing, but no study so far has sought the views of obstetricians on this subject. This survey will give you the opportunity to contribute your opinions to this debate. If you are a qualified obstetrician or medical doctor with experience performing caesareans in the last 5 years, please follow this link to the online survey (which should take no longer than 10 minutes).

Please also share this message with your colleagues who may be interested in taking part. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey, we value your contribution! If you have any questions, please contact us at
