Abstract : Most of women feel anxious about their delivery. Late in pregnancy, they may be worried and anxious because of childbirth related fears. In this study, we wanted to know the experience during labour and delivery of pregnant women working in a medical or paramedical environment. Is childbirth experience more anxiogenic for professional women in health care? Do they live in a different way their pregnancy because of their medical knowledge? Do they manage to put their profession aside? Two groups were compared: a group of professional women in health care and a control group of women working in completely different areas. We evaluated several feelings during labour and delivery in both groups with questionnaires. Our study doesn't conclude that the healthcare profession have an impact on women's experience in delivery room which may be more anxiogenic for this patient. Patients with an healthcare profession feels the same fears and anguish than the other women during labour and delivery.
