Fathers experience of emergency caesarean section (English)
Abstract [sv]

Pappans närvaro under förlossning har ökat de senaste åren. Vid förlossning förväntas de spela en aktiv roll i form av stöd för kvinnan. Många män är inte beredda på att en normal förlossning hastigt kan behöva slutas med kejsarsnitt. Syftet med studien är att ta reda på och beskriva pappors upplevelser av akut kejsarsnitt. För att få fram pappors upplevelse användes en fenomenologisk forskningsmetod i form av kvalitativa forskningsintervjuer. Fem pappor deltog i studien. Data presenteras i fem kategorier; blivande pappors kunskap och förväntningar kring förlossning, att inte veta vad som händer, närvaro ger delaktighet, att bli lämnad ensam eller inte, med eller utan information samt efter operation. Resultatet visade att blivande pappors förväntningar kring förlossning är att det ska gå normalt till. Deras kunskap om akuta kejsarsnitt är liten och därmed känner de sig oförberedda inför händelsen. Om informationen från barnmorskan var bristande medförde det att pappan kände oro och att han inte var delaktig i processen. De pappor som får information känner sig mer trygga och får en mer positiv upplevelse. En sådan enkel handling som att informera om vad som sker kan ändra en hel syn på en upplevelse.

Abstract [en]

Fathers attendance during childbirth has increased during the years. They are expected to play an important role in supporting the woman during delivery. Many men are not aware that what seems to be a normal delivery suddenly can end with an emergency caesarean section. The aim of this study was to see/find out how prospective fathers experience the situation of emergency caesarean section. To study fathers experience of caesarean section we used a phenomenological research method. Five fathers participated in the study and data was obtained by qualitative research interviews. The data was analysed and divided into five categories: expectant fathers knowledge and expectations about giving birth, to not know what is happening, presence gives a feeling of participation, to be left alone or not with or without information and after the operation. Results of the study showed that prospective fathers´ birth expectations were that it will be a normal delivery. Their knowledge of emergency caesarean section is small and therefore they feel unprepared with the situation. Not receiving continuous information from the midwife makes the father worried and anxious and gives a negative feeling of the delivery. The fathers who received information during the process had a more positive feeling and a feeling of participation. A simple thing like getting information changes the way a person feels about a situation.
