Hemabort innebär att kvinnor slutför en medicinsk abort isitt hem, det har varit tillåtet i Sverige sedan 2004. Tidigare studier visar att kvinnor uppleverhemabort som mer naturligt än abort utförd på sjukhus. Stöd kan ses utifrån fyra dimensioner;informativt, instrumentellt, emotionellt och bekräftade. Syftet med studien var att beskrivakvinnors upplevelse av stöd från barnmorskor i samband med medicinsk hemabort. Metodensom använts är kvalitativ innehållsanalys utifrån en induktiv ansats. Datainsamlingen har skettgenom en enkät med öppna frågor. Sex kvinnor valde att delta i studien. Resultatet indelades isex kategorier och ett tema. Resultatet visar att även fast kvinnorna upplever utsatthet, är denöjda med det stöd de erbjuds. Kvinnorna känner sig väl informerade, delaktiga och trygga;de uppskattar telefonsamtalet från barnmorska under abortdagen samt att de kan nå sjukhusetdygnet runt.

Medical abortion means termination of pregnancy in a pharmacological way, it can beperformed until the ninth week of pregnancy. Abortion at home means that women completea medical abortion in their homes, it has been allowed in Sweden since 2004. Previous studiesillustrate that women experience abortion at home as more natural than abortion performed athospital. Support can be seen from four different dimensions; informational, instrumental,emotional and appraisal. The aim of the study was to describe women’s experiences ofsupport from midwives in connection to induced medical abortion at home. The method usedis qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach. The collecting of data has beenmade through a questionnaire with open questions. Six women chose to participate in thestudy. The result was divided into six categories and one theme. The result shows that eventhough the women feel vulnerable, they are satisfied with the support they are offered. Thewomen feel that they are well informed, involved and safe; they appreciate the call from themidwife during the day of the abortion, also that the hospital can be reached day and night.
