INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATORS

 

The INTERSECT study collaborates with principal investigators from different countries. Principal investigators in each country are responsible for carrying out the INTERSECT survey in their own country to contribute to the international data and analysis of birth-trauma.

This study will provide information on the cross-cultural prevalence of postpartum PTSD, as well as differences in the etiology and manifestation of childbirth-related PTSD worldwide.
