Intrauterine fetal death : How midwives experience their support during childbirth of a stillborn child. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Enligt Statistiska Centralbyrån [SCB] föddes det år 2008 109 301 barn i Sverige. Utöver dessa föddes det cirka 600 barn som dött i livmodern innan förlossning. Intrauterin fosterdöd innebär att barn föds döda efter graviditetsvecka 22. Tidigare forskning belyser vikten av att barnmorskor har ett individuellt synsätt vid mötet med par vid intrauterin fosterdöd. Forskningen åskådliggör även hur föräldrar upplevt det stöd som givits under förlossningen. Det finns dock relativt lite forskning kring hur barnmorskor stödjer vid intrauterin fosterdöd. Syftet med detta arbete var därför att undersöka hur barnmorskor upplever sitt stöd i samband med förlossning vid intrauterin fosterdöd. Metoden som användes var kvalitativ innehållsanalys med en induktiv ansats. Fem barnmorskor intervjuades på två förlossningsavdelningar i Västra Götaland och Örebro län. I analysprocessen framkom tre huvudkategorier;individanpassa, ge tid och vara ett verktyg. Resultatet visar att barnmorskors stöd under förlossning inriktar sig på att låta paren styra informationsflödet och genom närvaro lyssna in behoven. Det var av vikt att ge paren tid i förlossningsarbetet men även tid i mötet med barnet. För att stödja bör barnmorskan känna sig trygg både i sig själv och i sin profession. En trygghet kring sin egen syn på döden var också av betydelse i stödet.

Abstract [en]

According to the Swedish bureau of Statistics [SCB] there were 109 301 children born in Sweden during 2008, in addition to these there where also approximately 600 stillborn children. Intrauterine fetal death means that the child has died in the womb after the 22nd week of pregnancy. Previous research highlights the importance of the midwives´ individual approach to parents with a stillborn child. Research also illustrates how parents experienced the support given during delivery. However, there is a limited amount of research done on how midwives support the parents of a stillborn child. The aim of this study was there for to investigate how midwives experience there support during delivery of a stillborn child. The method used was qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach. Five midwives were interviewed at two maternity wards in Västra Götaland and Örebro County. The analysis process revealed three main categories; adjust to the individual, to give time and to be a tool. The result shows that midwife´s support during delivery focuses on allowing couples to control the flow of information and by being present judge the parents´ needs. It is important to give the parents time both during delivery and to spend time with the stillborn child. To be able to support, the midwife need to feel confident both personally and professionally. It was also significant what the midwife´s own view on death was.
