Committed to Research

Auburn Hospital is leading research investigating alternate birth environment designs. A study being led by birth unit Midwives Sarah Tapp, Helen Mou and Jawaher Masri is investigating if a change in the design of the birthing room will encourage mothers to have an active labour and birth. It is hoped this study may provide evidence that these changes to the room lead to a decrease in caesarean births. If this study is positive then these changes will be trialled across birth units within NSW.
