La construction du projet de naissance par les patientes en échange avec les professionnels de santé

Abstract : Many authorities recommend to health professionals to encourage women to express their wishes for their delivery, and this for several years. So, it would be logic that the practice of the birth plan would be generalised to most of the population, and yet it is not. The birth plan is a reflection and the expression of the idea that the couple makes about the birth of their baby. Therefore, it allows to express the wishes of the couple by communicating with health professionals. In front of this practice still uncommon and not always accepted by the professionals, we wondered about the impact of the professionals met during the pregnancy. The main objective of our study was to analyse the impacts of the exchanges between the professionals and the patients about the construction of the birth plan. The second objective was to analyse the communication elements at play at this occasion. For that, we did a qualitative study from 8 women that had a birth plan, during semidirectives interviews. In majority, the exchanges with professionals do not lead to modifications of the birth plan from patients. On the other hand, the exchanges allowed to answer to the questions the patients had about their birth plan and above all it allowed to confirm their wishes for their delivery. We could also observe that patients talked more with liberal midwives et that they consider that the time devoted for them during their appointments at the maternity is not long enough.
