We are currently conducting a survey of the maternity services and care provided in Nanaimo, Ladysmith, and Oceanside.

We want to ask you about your experience of being cared for while pregnant in one of these communities. From this information, we will work with our community of patients and health care providers to determine ways in which we can enhance the care of maternity patients. 

In order to complete this survey you must have had a baby while living in the Nanaimo region in the last 3 years.

After you have completed the survey, please enter to win a $200 gift certificate to Huckleberry Baby Shop.
