“My CUB threw a shadow over the whole pregnancy” : Women’s experiences related to having undergone CUB (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Efterfrågan på tidig fosterdiagnostik har ökat bland blivande föräldrar. KUB är den vanligast förekommande fosterdiagnostiska metoden men är inte diagnostiserande utan kalkylerar en sannolikhet för huruvida trisomi 13, 18 eller 21 föreligger. Detta är kvinnorna inte alltid medvetna om, varför förberedelse och noggrann information är viktigt. Denna studie utfördes därmed för att belysa kvinnors upplevelser relaterat till genomfört KUB. Syfte: Att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser relaterat till genomfört KUB. Metod: Kvalitativ innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats användes. 10 trådar från Internetforumet Familjeliv.se och 12 bloggar hittades under datainsamlingen och låg till grund för dataanalys. Resultat: Analysen mynnade ut ett sammanfattande tema: KUB ses som en möjlighet att bekräfta graviditeten men leder till varierande känslor som barnmorskor måste stödja på ett förtroendefullt sätt. De mest framträdande känslorna som beskrevs relaterat till KUB var oro och rädsla. Barnmorskor upplevdes inte ge det stöd som behövdes. Konklusion: KUB ses som ett sätt att bekräfta graviditeten. För att minska oron behöver barnmorskor ge individanpassad information till kvinnorna. Kvinnors oro relaterat till KUB tenderar att grumla graviditeten och kvarstå lång tid framöver.

Abstract [en]

Background: The demand on prenatal diagnosis increases among expecting parents. CUB is the most common method for the matter but doesn’t provide any diagnosis. CUB only calculates the probability of a fetus with trisomy 13, 18 or 21. Women aren’t always aware of this. Hence, careful preparations and information are necessary. This study was performed to enhance knowledge in women’s experiences in relation to have undergone CUB. Aim: To describe women’s experiences related to having undergone CUB. Method: A qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach was used. Internet was used for data collection. This collection resulted in 10 threads from bulletin board Familjeliv.se and 12 blogs which became the base for data analysis. Result: The analysis resulted in one theme: CUB is seen as an opportunity to confirm the pregnancy but leads to mixed feelings which the midwives need to support in a trustful way. Anxiety and fear are the most common emotions mentioned among women who have undergone CUB. Women felt that midwives didn’t always provide enough information or the requested information. The encounters with midwives during CUB were described as stressful and even unpleasant. Conclusion: CUB is seen as an early way to confirm the pregnancy. To reduce the anxiety, midwives need to give individualised information. Anxiety tends to obscure the pregnancy and remain a long time.
