NAACP Maternal Experience Survey

Thank you for participating in the NAACP Maternal Experience Survey, sponsored by the Prematurity Prevention Initiative (PPI).
This survey is for people who recently gave birth and would like to discuss their labor and delivery experiences.

Question Title

Your voice matters. 

Your experience matters.  

This survey is designed to allow you, and many women & birthing people like you, to honestly share your maternal journey.

We want your feedback so we can all work together to reduce disparities, improve care and promote positive outcomes for birthing people in our community. 

We respect your privacy so you don’t have to share your name, and your responses will remain confidential. If you choose to identify any information such as where you gave birth, your responses will not be associated with your personal information.

For your convenience, you can exit your survey at any time and come back to complete it later, as long as it’s on the same device. It won’t be final until you click "Submit" at the end of the survey. 

If you have questions about your involvement in this survey, please contact Cathy Butler-Witt, Director of Public Health Programs, at or 856-816-8516.

Proprietary Information and Confidentiality

MES responses are confidential, anonymous and birthing people choose the way their information is shared through consent.
