Incorporate questions about culture as appropriate. Culture includes religion, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity

Interview a pregnant woman (or a woman that had a baby in the last year) and her partner if applicable using the questions below. In interviewing the woman, be sure to tell her/them that the interview is for a project for your course in development. Assure her/them that they have the right not to answer any of the questions and may stop the interview at any time. Let her/them know that no one will see the answers to the interview questions and that her/their name(s) will not be used. In giving the interview, write down as much of their responses as you can. You might consider tape recording the interview to avoid taking time to write the answers during the interview. Be sure to ask permission to use a tape recorder and assure her/them that the tape will be erased.

Feel free to add questions to the interview as appropriate while talking, but be sure to cover all of the issues included. Many of the questions are meant to have more than one or two sentence answers. You will need to practice using follow-up probes to get longer answers: –Can you tell me more about that? –I don’t understand. Can you give me an example? –How does that make you feel? –How important is that to you? –using “uh-huh” and head nodding may also lead to more responding

Incorporate questions about culture as appropriate. Culture includes religion, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, age, gender, etc.
