The questionnaire used for the birth survey was designed to be completed by the midwife in attendance at delivery, with reference to all available records and after an interview with the mother. Information recorded included: social and family background, details of past obstetric history,antenatal care and abnormalities during pregnancy, length and abnormalities of labour, analgesia and anaesthesia as well as sex, weight, progress, management and outcome of the infant. This information was supplemented, in the case of stillbirths or neonatal deaths, with a clinical summary by the midwife and medical attendants.
