État des lieux des besoins liés à la maternité étudiante : étude qualitative auprès des mères étudiantes : avec le soutien du Service de santé universitaire

Abstract : Background – Currently, the length of higher education and the age of motherhood is increasing in France. The rate of returning to school after an employed year also rises. Pregnancies among female students are therefore occurring more and more often, yet there is no such status as a student-parent. The mutual impacts of parenthood and university career are understudied. Objectives – Assess the needs, expectations and difficulties experienced by student-mothers. Assess mothers' perceptions of their global care during pregnancy and postpartum. Methods – A descriptive observational qualitative study was performed through phone and face-to-face interviews with ten student-mothers. A thematic analysis of the data was conducted. Results – The student pregnancy wasn't necessarily unexpected. Due to the remoteness of the family and the possible comments of other students, a relative isolation faced the mother-students. The impossibility of exercising a salaried activity and the few financial aids made the situation sometimes difficult. The lack of university facilities defined in case of maternity often tended towards university repetition. Conclusion – The establishment of university facilities and the networking of universities and perinatal professionals could break down current prejudices and facilitate student motherhood, as is already the case in other countries such as Canada and Switzerland.
