Réalisation d'une analgésie péridurale malgré un souhait contraire : le vécu de dix femmes

Abstract : Realization of epidural analgesia despite a contrary desire : the experience of ten women. The rate of epidural analgesia in France is one of the highest in the world. This rate does not always reflect women's desire, therefore it seemed important for us to meet women who delivered under epidural analgesia despite a contrary desire to. We wanted to understand their motivation, the course of events, as well as their feelings to support maternity and finally deficiency and satisfaction. This allows us to provide avenues for professionals to ensure proper support to each patient in accordance with her plan. We conducted a qualitative study with 10 women, on the basis of semi-structured interview, between October and December 2013 interview in an independent midwife's surgery. The main motivation survey among ten women is the fear of technical gesture of epidural analgesia, often in connection with the fulfillment of a culture Other motivations are the desire for a natural childbirth, considered the best workflow and delivery. The majority of women were satisfied with their delivery and their care, with the exception of two. All the women expressed shortages. Childbirth without epidural analgesia is a thoughtful choice. It is therefore important that professionals understand the different motivations to adapt their care to each patient. Childbirth is a unique moment for both the woman and the couple, it is not standard event.
