The excoriation in becoming a parent : on women's existential health related to reproduction from midwife's perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Barnmorskor möter kvinnor när deras existentiella hälsa utmanas vilket innebär att barnmorskors förståelse för existentiell hälsa är betydelsefullt att belysa Syfte: Att fördjupa förståelsen av meningen med existentiell hälsa i relation till reproduktion ur barnmorskors perspektiv. Metod: Sju barnmorskor skrev ned sina reflektioner gällande kvinnors existentiella hälsa i ett frågeformulär. Svaren analyserades med den kvalitativa metoden hermeneutisk textanalys enligt Gadamer. Resultat: Analysen gav upphov till tre teman, varav det första delades in i två underteman, enligt följande rubriker: En mångtydig känsla i det existentiella samtalet med kvinnan, En vägledning till kvinnan att finna sin inre styrka och tro på sig själv i transitionen till föräldraskapet och Dialogen om tro på mänskligheten och livet, som inte behöver vara religion. Konklusion: Resultatet visar betydelsen av samtal om existentiell hälsa för kvinnor och barnmorskornas egen förmåga att möta kvinnor i dessa samtal, samt yttre omständigheter som påverkar dessa samtal. Den existentiella hälsan har betydelse för det totala måendet och därför bör fokus på existentiell hälsa vara en självklar beståndsdel i mötet med gravida kvinnor.

Abstract [en]

Background: The story of the woman should be perceived as a possibility for the midwives to obtain more knowledge on existential health. Aim: To deepen the understanding of the meaning of existential health related to reproduction from the midwife´s perspective. Method: 7 midwifes wrote down their reflections on women´s existential health in a questionnaire. The answers were analysed with the qualitative method, hermeneutical text analysis in accordance with Gadamer. Results: The analysis emerged in three themes: An ambiguous feeling in the existential conversation with the woman, A guidance to the woman to find her inner strength and faith in herself in the transition to parenthood and the Dialogue about faith in humanity and life, which does not have to be religion. Conclusion: The result shows the importance of conversations about existential health for women and the midwifes abilities of meeting women in these conversations and external factors interfering on these conversations. The existential health influences on the total wellbeing therefore should focus on existential health be an obvious element in the meeting with the pregnant woman.
