La contraception du post-partum : les stratégies d'information, le point de vue des femmes

Abstract : Objective : In France, 5,5% of the voluntary terminations of pregnancy take place in the six months that follow the childbirth. This renewed report of the persistence of unplanned pregnancy in the post-partum raises the question of the strategies which are being organised to inform women about this contraception. This information is essential to allow the young mothers to choose the contraceptive method the most adapted to their new situation. Indeed, as reminds regularly E Aubeny, "the best contraception is not the most effective in theory, but the one that the woman really chose". The objective of this study is to estimate this information through the women's point of view. Methods : A hundred and four young mothers were questioned from September until December 2013. During their session of perineal rehabilitation by a liberal midwife, they filled a questionnaire concerning the information delivered to them on the contraception of the post-partum. Results and conclusion : In our study, almost a third of women who gave birth (28,7%) are not satisfied by the information they received. 56,7% of them found the moment in which this information was explained to them inappropriate. As for the women who were satisfied, they found the moment appropriate to more than 95%. None of the women of the study knew all the possible methods after childbirth. And among the women who had a prescription at the release from the maternity, 30,8% did not follow it and 69,4% changed it during the postnatal visit. Information about the contraception of the post-partum, although paramount, is not optimal. It seems thus essential to find how and by which means we can have a better approach to the question of contraception with pregnant or just-giving birth women. For that purpose, it is necessary to fit out times at convenient moments and thus to allow the woman to develop her choice in the purpose of planning of a future wished pregnancy.
