Birth experiences – what seems to make them negative? (English)
Abstract [no]

Hensikt: Å belyse hvilke aspekter kvinner selv trekker fram når de beskriver sin fødselsopplevelse som negativ.

Metode: Kvalitativ tematisk analyse er anvendt for å analysere fritekstkommentarer fra 103 kvinner som har vurdert sin fødselsopplevelse som negativ, i den norske kohorten av Bidens-studien.

Hovedresultater: Tre hovedtemaer trer fram i resultatene: ”Komplikasjoner hos mor, barn eller begge”, ”Å ikke føle seg sett og hørt” og ”Opplevelse av smerte og tap av kontroll”. Funnene viser at majoritetenav kvinnene hadde opplevd uventede og dramatiske komplikasjoner. Mange hadde følt seg ignorert, dårlig behandlet og ikke inkludert i avgjørelser. Et mindretall opplevde at den negative fødselsopplevelsen hovedsaklig skyldtes smerte og/eller tap av kontroll.

Konklusjon: Kvinnenes beskrivelser viser at de ikke forventet å oppleve det de gjorde i fødsel, det være seg komplikasjoner eller mangelfull ivaretakelse. Enkelte opplevde situasjoner som må betraktes som overgrep i form av forsømmelse, verbale overtrampog uhøflig opptredenfra omsorgsgivernes side. I denne studien kommer det fram at omsorgsgiveres holdninger og væremåte er vesentlig for en positiv fødselsopplevelse. Den informasjonen som komfram gjennom funnene kan brukes av jordmødre for på best mulig måte å forebygge negative fødselsopplevelser.

Abstract [en]

Aim: This study aimed to explore the aspects women describe as contributing to their negative experience of childbirth.

Methods: We used qualitative thematic analysis to analyze 103 free-text comments in a questionnaire from the Norwegian cohort of the Bidens study. The comments were provided by women who had a negative childbirth experience.

Main findings: The majority of respondents reported experiencing unexpected and dramatic complications during childbirth. We identified three major themes: “(i) complications in mother, baby or both”, “(ii) not being seen or heard”; and (iii) “experience of pain and loss of control”. Further, the majority of respondents had felt ignored, had not been treated with respect, and did not feel included in decisions about their childbirth. A minority described pain and loss of control as the main reason for their negative birth experience.

Conclusions: The women’s comments show that they did not expect to experience negative things during childbirth. Further, they were unprepared for complications and improper care. Alarmingly, many respondents experienced what must be characterized as abuse in the health-care system (i.e. neglect, verbal abuse or rudeness). The present study shows that caregivers’ attitudes and presentation contribute importantly to a positive childbirth experience. Midwives can use the information gained from this study to prevent negative birth experiences.
