Prévention alimentaire et nutritionnelle par les sages-femmes au cours de la grossesse

Abstract : Background: A healthy and balanced diet is essential for the successful convening of the pregnancy and long-term health of the woman and her child. The objective of the study was to understand the position of midwives as actors of food and nutritional prevention during pregnancy follow-up. Study design: A qualitative, descriptive and interpretative study was carried out on the basis of semi-structured one-on-one interviews with 10 midwives from Auvergne providing prenatal consultations. Results and discussion: Midwives are concerned with food and nutrition prevention of pregnant women. Nevertheless, prevention is sometimes succinct and not systematic. Provide advices is not easy, especially because of the lack of time during consultations and sometimes because of the lack of knowledge on the subject. Diet is a sensitive subject during pregnancy. Precautions are taken by midwives to talk wisely, taking care of pregnant women in its entirety (psychosocial, cultural, etc.). Conclusion: Midwives are in the front line to promote health through food. For this, regular updating of midwives’ knowledge is needed the personalization of pregnant women management is essential and an interprofessional co-operation is advisable.
