Vécu de la prise en charge de la grossesse par les femmes ayant bénéficié d’une aide médicale à la procréation

Abstract : Introduction : Couples aiming to become parents turn to medically assisted procreation (MAP) with increasing frequency. This procedure has been the subject of variety of studies, with a focus on the obstetrical point of view. However, the psychological aspect has been underdeveloped in present-day research works. Method : The goal of the survey was to study the care and treatment of women who relied on MAP for their pregnancy. Collaborating with the MAP department of a university hospital of the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region, and using social networks, a qualitative descriptive and interpretative study has been performed. One couple and seven women were surveyed through semi-structured interviews. Results : The handling of the pregnancy has been met with satisfaction for most, although some differences of opinion on certain matters have been revealed, without it being confined to the pregnancy period. Discussion : The already significant emotional baggage associated with childbearing is coming up frequently during pregnancy, and it has an impact on multiple levels, which has been highlighted in this study. Conclusion : Communication, crucial during such events, is not always an easy task. The study has underlined that even if some people wish to have a different monitoring during pregnancy, other might want this kind of support post-partum.
