La place du père dans la prise en charge de l'interruption médicale de grossesse

Abstract : Objectives: The midwife is one of the main actors around pregnancy and birth. She is also required to accompany couples in more complicated situations such as that of medical termination of pregnancy. This event can be particularly difficult for future parents. The question of the lived of the mother has been studied several times, but much less on the father’s lived. The main objective of this study is to understand the experience of fathers faced with a therapeutic abortion, and subsequently to identify their expectations and needs for optimal care. Material and Method: For this we carried out a phenomenological qualitative study during which we interviewed fathers, in the form of semi-directive interviews. Results: The study highlighted the traumatic nature of therapeutic abortion, including for fathers. Many say they did not feel cared for as the father of the child, but rather considered the husband, accompanying the mother. Their experience traces a feeling of lack of consideration, and a lack of human support. Fathers say they need recognition, and translate a lack of landmarks. Perhaps the accentuation on the caregiver’s training related to this issue could improve the current care?
