A belly to be happy about! : An interview study of pregnant women with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 (English)
Abstract [sv]

Enligt WHO är övervikt och fetma ett växande problem världen över. Att vara kvinna och ha ett BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 innebär risker i samband med en graviditet. Det kan exempelvis påverka kvinnans välmående under graviditeten i form av högt blodtryck, graviditetsdiabetes, risk för intrauterin fosterdöd och en långsam framskridande förlossning. Krav ställs på barnmorskan i mötet med den gravida kvinnan med BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 då kvinnan önskar att få information om risker kring graviditeten utan att barnmorskan är dömande. Att leva med fetma innebär för många kvinnor att inte bli sedda som den person de egentligen är. Kvinnan önskar att bli sedd som en egen person och inte som en person med fetma. Kvinnorna upplever att de inte passar in i samhällets ideal på grund av sin storlek och andras fördomar kring fetma. Vid graviditet får kvinnor som lever med fetma en känsla av att passa in då det nu finns en förklaring till magens storlek. De upplever att de kan vara glada och stolta över sin mage vid graviditet vilket känns befriande.

Abstract [en]

Overweight and obesity measured by body mass index are an increasing problem worldwide according to WHO. Women having a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 run a great risk when being pregnant. Complications such as high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, risk of intrauterine fetal death and slow progress when giving birth to the baby are risks that can affect the wellbeing of the woman and the child. According to the women the midwife’s most important role when meeting with the pregnant woman having a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 is to inform about risks during pregnancy, but the midwife must not act judgingly. Living with obesity means for many women not to be seen as the person they actually are. The women want to be seen as a person and not as a person with obesity. The women experience that they do not fit into the ideal of society because of their size and because of other people’s prejudice against obesity. When being pregnant the obese women feel comfortable in society because there is an explanation to the size of their belly. They experience that they are happy and proud about their belly, and it gives them a feeling of relief.
