Phase de latence : accompagnement de la douleur par des moyens non pharmacologiques

Abstract : Objective Support for pain management in the latency phase differs between midwives. All this aspect isn’t in the form of protocol in maternities. Midwife decides what solution is the best to alleviate the patient with non-pharmacological means, by combining support, comfort and work progress. Thus, we wanted to know how midwives help handle pregnant women pain, in order to have a consideration on our practice. Methods We set up a qualitative study by 14 interviews, performed among 7 midwives practicing in seven maternity and 7 liberal midwives practicing childbirth, ward of Ile-de-France (France). These interviews were conducted from March to July 2019. Results and conclusion Midwives know different methods that support painful women. They use several materials supplied in their workplace, but also their complementary formations to alleviate pain with work progress. However, they can’t help the same way all pregnant women. Indeed, the lack of time and overwork in hospital highly impact their availability. On the contrary, liberal midwives, who have less time management constraints, have more facilities to know the desires, expectations and fears of the couple.
