Nouvelles compétences en gynécologie et contraception : quels intérêts portés par les patientes, quels enjeux pour les sages-femmes ?

Abstract : On the 21st of July 2009, a law called the Hospital Patient Health Territorial was passed which gives midwives autonomy to prescribe methods of contraception to all women that have a history of continued good health, and also to perform well woman health checks. We have established a study directed at pregnant women under both public and private health care. The purpose of this study was to record and evaluate their expectations and opinions towards this new service, but also to check patients opinions of what role of the midwife should take within the sexual and reproductive health of women. This study has shown that patient knowledge regarding the midwifery profession is not clear, even though many of them know that midwives can prescribe contraception, they were unaware that a midwife can carry out full gynecological health screening. During the study, we have made women aware that it is in their interest, assuming they are healthy, to be seen by midwives for their gynecological consultations. We have therefore re-positioned the midwife to be the first point of contact, within the medical professional, for the sexual and reproductive health of women, based on the conditions of an initial assessment and the continued professional development of the midwife.
