Du désir d’enfant au projet conceptionnel : exploration des préoccupations et besoins en santé de couples par une étude qualitative

Abstract : Preconception health is fundamental for both baby and parents. Preconception care is effective and recommended but is not carried out optimally in France. This work focuses on the concerns and needs of prospective parents. The main goal is to develop new methodologies in preconception care based on the experiences of couples who intend to have a baby. Qualitative research was carried out on 8 couples intending to have a baby. Semi structured interviews were conducted in the Rhone-Alpes area from November 2018 to July 2019. Even though the couples expressed a desire to conceive autonomously, they also expressed their need to be informed and reassured by healthcare professionals. This study confirms that preconception health is not well enough understood. The couples were in favour of the idea in principle, but would more inclined to take it up if it matched their needs more closely. Certain suggestions which they made as service users are also worth exploring. An increase in the budget for public awareness and education, as well as facilitating access to authoritative and reliable information would also likely improve take-up rate. There emerge a clear need to highlight the role of the father’s and health in preconception care.
