Vécu des femmes concernant le décollement du pôle inférieur de l'œuf : analyse qualitative menée auprès de huit femmes en Occitanie

Abstract : Background: In France, induction of labor is one of the most common obstetric interventions. The practice of membranes sweeping, mainly performed by midwives, is described as increasing the number of patients spontaneously entering labor. Thus, ensuring women's satisfaction with this gesture, and identifying its determinants, is the objective of this work. Study design: A qualitative, descriptive and interpretative study was carried out thanks to semi-directive interviews conducted with eight post-partum patients in a private practice and a hospital in the Occitanie region. These interviews were then analyzed in a thematic manner. Results: The women's experience depended on how they felt at the time of the gesture, on their sense of usefulness and effectiveness, and on their expectations of the gesture. There were five criteria that mainly influenced the feeling of satisfaction of women: the overall follow-up and the continuity of the follow-up proposed by the midwife, the quality of the information, the importance of the positive past experience on the DPIO, the quality and the influence of family environment or access to education or prenatal information about the DPIO and an alternative to therapeutic means of initiation. The lack of information, recourse to a medical procedure, the painful nature were the main elements of dissatisfaction. Discussion: Not all patients received the information about DPIO at the same time. Some appreciated being informed of the possibility of recourse to this gesture, during the pregnancy follow-up, others preferred to know it just before its realization. To answer this problem, an information poster on the detachment of the membrane sweeping was developed as part of this study.
