Grossesse compliquée d’une pathologie obstétricale ou fœtale : représentation de la maladie et vécu de l’hospitalisation en unité de Grossesses à Haut Risque

Abstract : Introduction: Pregnancy is considered as a vulnerable time for women during which they can live a psychological upset. When the pregnancy becomes pathological, they can experiment anxiety, depression or even post-traumatic stress syndrom leading to harmful impact on their mental health but also on their child sensory and cognitive development. Aim: Our aim was to understand how women represent their pathological pregnancy and how they experiment their hospitalization in order to improve the patient care. Methods: We conducted 6 semi-structured interviews of pregnant hospitalized women suffering from an obstetrical or fœtal disease. The study was carried out in a level III maternity of Nouvelle-Aquitaine. Results: We showed that the existence of pathological pregnancies is highly unknown. The announcement of the disease is very sudden and shoking and the couples are deeply traumatized. We also learned that the women care a lot about the medical speeches and that we have to weigh our words because they deeply influence how the women feel and live their pregnancies. Eventually, women were unanimous on the fact that this is a boredom and loneliness event. Conclusion: Much can be learned from this study about how women experiment and bear their pregnancy and their hospitalizations. Levers for improvement were identified and we hope to enhance these patients care.
