To analyse the use of a free, public, perinatal internet consultation service, 2000 consultations provided by university hospital staff were evaluated over 30 months. Ninety five percent of the questioners were women, and 62% of them were primiparous. The average response rate was 2.3 audience responses per question. Fifty-two percent of the consultations were related to labour and delivery, 23% were related to pregnancy complications, 16% were related to prenatal diagnosis, and 7% were related to the puerperium period. We conclude that medical consultation forums provide an additional way of delivering inexpensive, accessible, fast, and convenient healthcare services.
