Le rapport à la douleur de l'accouchement à travers deux générations de mères

Abstract : The pain of childbirth has attracted the interest of many health professionals, leading to the development of behavioral and drug techniques to suppress it. The mothers of today would not give birth under the same conditions as the mothers of yesterday, the relationship to pain changing with the advances. Objective The purpose of this study is to show that advances in pain management have changed the perception of labor pains today. Methods This study is based on the analysis of semi-structured interviews with a sample of mothers who gave birth in 2016 and mothers who gave birth at least once before the 1980s. Results and conclusion The emergence of epidurals in maternity clinics has changed maternal preoccupations during pregnancy: the anxiety of pain is less present, or nonexistent. The reality of the current exercise conditions is that health professionals are however less trained to manage this pain by other means than medication.
