Aromathérapie et grossesse : étude descriptive auprès de 104 femmes

Abstract : Introduction: Alternative and complementary medicines are increasingly widely adopted during pregnancy, including aromatherapy. It’s in this context the study of this use during pregnancy seems particularly interesting. Objectives of this work were to study the prevalence of pregnant women who used essential oils, women’s satisfaction with their use and the prevalence of women seeking professional advise prior before their use. Method: Quantitative descriptive cross-sectional study achieves through questionnaires online addressed to women who have given birth for less than six months with physiological pregnancy. Results: Among the 104 questionnaires analysed, 21,15% of women use aromatherapy during pregnancy. The majority were satisfied with their use and only 9,1% used the advise of a health professionnal before the use of essentials oils during pregnancy. Discussion: Prevalence of the use of essential oils was very different according to the studies, but many women seem to used them. Moreover, satisfaction with their use seemed to be global. As health car professionnals, for the most part, didn’t have the necessary knowledge to advise patients, they search to not always reliable sources. Conclusion: Health professionals should be vigilant about the use of aromatherapy during pregnancy. Indeed, many women seem to use them, even without asking for advise and without talking to the professional who follows them. Moreover, larger studies seem necessary.
