Évolution de la perception de la douleur par les sages-femmes en France, durant les trente dernières années

Abstract : During centuries, giving birth was inevitably painful. Nowadays, women's labor is not linked to the bible's curse anymore. 30 years ago, with the epidural analgesia appearance in delivery room, we see labor's pain from a different point of view. In this report, we focused on the meaning the midwife gives to the pain today. The qualitative study made through midwives' interviews revealed that well-experienced ones are more skeptical towards the epidural than the others. Moreover, having pain in maternity is not clearly disapproved. Our first hypothesis can be confirmed since in the obstetric unit, becoming a mother implies sufferings, to which we still give a particular meaning. However, our second hypothesis can't be approved totally as the epidural is not considered by midwives, as the best suited way to relieve a woman in delivery room.
