Vécu et prise en charge de la douleur au cours du travail obstétrical : étude à visée descriptive et interprétative dans une maternité de type 1

Abstract : Background : Labour pain is one of the most severe pains a woman will live in her life. Studying labour pain is crucial as it is a physical and psychological challenge for women and couples. Methods : The objective of this study was to explore the experience of labour pain. A qualitative study was realized in a type I maternity in the region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with nine women between the first and the third day of postpartum period. Results : Women have a prenatal representation of labour pain from previous personal experience and oral transmission. Parturient women felt satisfied thanks to the antenatal preparation, management methods, advice, care and support provided by the midwives. Moreover, the presence of a trustworthy person was appreciated for the labour pain management. Discussion : The different approaches to labour pain expectation and management in this study and scientific literature were similar. Furthermore, additional studies about the influence of parity, age and cultural approaches on labour pain experience would be interesting. Conclusion : The antenatal preparation, the support from midwives and the presence of a trustworthy person contribute to a satisfactory labour pain experience. However, prevention from psychological disorder appears as essential after a difficult labour pain experience.
