La préparation à la naissance spécifique pour les pères : étude descriptive sur 158 pères dans une maternité auvergnate de type III

Abstract : Background: Discussion groups for expectant fathers have been little studied. These sessions, led by a doctor or a midwife during the pregnancy, provide a space for exchange and information. The aim of this research is to determine whether expectant fathers find interest in this initiative, to define the profile of interested fathers, and to know their expectations on this matter. Study design : An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted in a level-3 maternity ward, where this type of discussion group exists. 158 fathers answered a questionnaire a few days after delivery. Results: 42% of the surveyed fathers are interested in discussion groups and only 5% knew their existence. The results showed that most interested fathers are executives or belong to higher professional occupations. They expect their first child, received little information during the pregnancy, and most have a wife who attended birth and parenting preparation classes. Ideally, discussion groups should gather three times with a midwife, in early evening and at the end of the week, to exchange views and share experiences. Discussion: The actual discussion group at the level-3 maternity ward in Auvergne is meeting fathers’ expectations. Their needs must be known in order to customize in the best possible way the discussion groups, where some topics have to be discussed as a priority. Informative brochures should overcome the lack of awareness of expectant fathers about the existence of such groups.
