Abstract [en]

In this study our aim was to explore the experiences of doula support among foreign-born women in Sweden in the context of a “Community-Based Doula” (CBD) intervention project. We conducted interviews with ten women and analyzed the data using content analysis. Participating women reported that, in addition to support during labor; doulas provided important information and continuity of care, which apparently increased their satisfaction with and trust in maternity health care. Training of CBDs therefore has implications for delivery of equitable maternity care, which apply not only to Sweden and other European countries but wherever there are increasingly diverse populations.
