La parentalité des femmes atteintes de déficience visuelle

Abstract : Objective: ln France, parenthood of visually impaired women is often criticized and misunderstood by society. This is Why a study was conducted which aimed to describe and analyze the development of parenting among partially sighted mothers (moderate 1 to blindness) from birth to age 3. Methodology: A clinical study based on semi-directive interviews was conducted With seven visually impaired mothers (from moderate to blind) With children aged under 5 years. The variables measured were the exercise, the practice and experience of parenting, and the support provided. Analysis grids were set up from the analysis of the interviews' content. Results: The results show that the partially sighted mothers live their parenthood differently and she faces challenges that sighted mothers do not faced, but know how to be inventive to overcome them. Their relatives and caregivers remain present but the government gives them rarely any support. Analysis and discussion: ln the context of visual impairment, mothers live their parenthood in many different ways. Their children develop specific behaviors to deal With their mother's disability, characterized by an obvious and strong mother-child relationship. However, due to the difficulties they face, it is critical that caregivers are trained to offer appropriate and specific care, and to support and guide them.
