Prise en charge des urgences néonatales par les sages-femmes en salle de naissance Actes, environnement et ressenti

Abstract : Objectives: To describe the technical and practical means of emergency care for newborn babies in the birth room, provided by the midwives in type I and IIA maternities. To identify possible issues such as staff, equipment or education and to determine the emotional impact of these immediate cares on midwives, particularely in terms of stress and a posteriori stress during the following days. Methods: Descriptive and prospective study achieved by an online questionnaire survey sent to type I and IIA maternity midwives from the Perinat-Sud network, who were involved in the previous seven days in an emergency care for a newborn baby who had to be transferred. Results: 90 transferred babies were notified, and 19 answers were collected from midwives. In this sample 45 % of the medical cares were provided by the midwives. In one out of two, the pediatrician was not present at the time of the delivery. The feeling of usefulness from the midwives with regards to the cares decreases. The professional experience allows a decrease of the a posteriori stress. Conclusion: Midwives are poorly known as newborn emergency practitioners in the birth room. However they are led to carry out some technical cares, sometimes while waiting for the pediatrician. The professionnal team, especially the presence of the pediatrician plays a great role in the feeling of the situation. The professionnal experience decreases the a posteriori stress. This study could not prove anything like this concerning ongoing education. It should hence be desirable that ongoing education be close as possible to professionnal experience.
