The Georgia Moms Project
A qualitative research project exploring women's experience of maternity care in Georgia
Mission of the project
The state of Georgia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the United States. The purpose of this study is to interview
people who have recently had the experience of seeking prenatal, labor/delivery and postnatal care in Georgia, in order to understand
the elements in their experience that could contribute to the soaring mortality rates. This research is intended to identify common
themes and experiences in order to find solutions to the maternal mortality crisis based in women's own knowledge of their care.
