Explores young Aboriginal mothers' labour and birthing needs and their suggestions for more positive experiences and outcomes. This research builds upon the 2009 PWHCE report, Young Aboriginal Mothers in Winnipeg, which discovered that the majority of Aboriginal mothers interviewed felt the birthing experience was frightening. Findings in the report echo that of other Aboriginal teen advocates who are calling for more research specifically focused on this population group and the need for an increased awareness regarding their maternal health needs.
