Informations sur l’alimentation en cours de grossesse : quelles sources utilisent les femmes enceintes ? Étude qualitative dans le sud-est de la France

Abstract : Introduction: the diet to follow during pregnancy remains a challenge for pregnant women, despite the wealth of information available. The objective of this qualitative study is to determine and specify the sources of information found and used by pregnant women in France. Methods: 26 semi-structured individual interviews with post-partum women were conducted during October 2018 and October 2019 in three hospital centers located in the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var. Results: following a thematic analysis of the data, there were highlighted two themes : the information given and the information sought. Among the sources of information given to pregnant women, are medical professionals, mainly gynecologists-obstetrician and midwives. However, the information provided by medical professionals is considered to be too general and brief. Thus, pregnant women look for additional information themselves in medias. Among the most used sources are the Internet and smartphone applications, which give an unlimited access to a variety of information. However, they doubt the reliability of this information at the same time and qualified it often as unclear and doubtful. In this uncertain situation, the medical professional remains to be the only reliable source of information regarding the diet during pregnancy. Conclusion: healthcare professionals should provide a personalized and adequate nutritional diet follow-up. Pregnant women will be also very interested in consulting a dietitian. They regret the lack of websites and smartphone applications developed by healthcare professionals. The women expect an improved information to make their own informed decision about their pregnancy.
