Giving Birth in Canada Core

Giving Birth in Canada is a series of reports on the health and health care of Canada's mothers and infants. The first report, Giving Birth in Canada: Providers of Maternity and Infant Care, focuses on trends in birthing and maternity and infant care, and examines the changing scope of practice for care providers. The second report, Giving Birth in Canada: A Regional Profile, highlights selected health care and health status indicators for Canada's mothers and infants - such as the use of epidurals, assisted deliveries and women having Caesarean sections for the first time - and presents new data at the regional level (for regions with populations of 75,000 or more) and at the provincial/territorial level. The third report, Giving Birth in Canada: The Costs, explores the costs associated with delivering maternity and infant care in Canada, including provincial, national and international comparisons. Costs associated with treating infertility, prenatal visits, delivery and neonatal care are examined. Where available, the report also presents data on the potential cost implications of the trends identified in the two preceding reports in the series.


An update to selected indicators previously featured in Giving Birth in Canada: A Regional Profile is presented in the Analysis in Brief: Giving Birth in Canada: Regional Trends From 2001-2002 to 2005-2006, and the Highlights of 2008-2009 Selected Indicators Describing the Birthing Process in Canada.


Too Early, Too Small: A Profile of Small Babies Across Canada is the most recent report in this series. This report provides information on selected factors associated with preterm and small for gestational age (SGA) births and examines the relationship between these factors and preterm birth and SGA rates at the pan-Canadian level. This report also examines the hospital costs of preterm birth, SGA and low birth weight infants.
