    Foreign-Born Women's Experiences of Community-Based Doulas in Sweden - A Qualitative Study2012In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 33, no 9, p. 833-848Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    The lived experience of genital warts: The Swedish example2004In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 25, no 5, p. 489-502Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim in this study was to analyze and describe young Swedish women's experiences of living with genital warts. Interviews with 10 young women, aged 16-21 years, were interpreted within a lifeworld hermeneutic tradition. The women experience themselves as victims of a disgusting disease. Furthermore, they appear to disregard the fact that their own lifestyles could be a risk factor for contracting venereal infections. On the other hand they get to know their bodies better after the gynecological examinations where the treatment begins. Their loss of innocence is considerable; thus it seems fair to compare this experience with earlier epochs' ideas about loss of virginity due to the first intercourse. Consequently the young women also start looking at themselves as adults, and they take responsibility for the consequences of their sexuality.

    Becoming and Being a Teenage Mother: How Teenage Girls in South Western Sweden View Their Situation2005In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 26, no 7, p. 591-603Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim in this study was to describe the perspectives, experiences, and reasonings about becoming and being a teenage mother by Swedish teenage girls. Twenty pregnant and parenting teenage girls, aged 15 to 19 years, were interviewed. The teenagers described a pattern of early childbirth in their families, lack of opportunity in life, and ambivalence in contraceptive use as reasons for becoming a teenage mother . They experienced being pregnant and a teenage mother as both a positive transition into adulthood but also as a physiological and psychological hardship. Furthermore, the teenagers emphasized the importance of supportive relationships with families, friends, and society as a prerequisite for successful parenting. The results of our study may be viewed as generating a working hypothesis that can be transferred to other settings on the basis of the information gathered.

    The Child's Father, an Important Person for the Mother's Well-Being During the Childbirth: A Hermeneutic Study2010In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 31, no 7, p. 621-635Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We describe Swedish mothers' experiences of having the child's father present during childbirth. A hermeneutic approach was used to collect data in various districts in southwestern Sweden. Analysis of the data acquired from 67 first-time mothers revealed one main category - The child's father becomes an important person for the mother's well-being during the childbirth. Five subcategories were also identified. While the findings refer to the experiences of Swedish women, in today's multicultural societies the findings may be relevant to health care professionals and women from other cultures. The father's role during cildbirth is also described in detail.

    To build a bridge between two worlds: Mothers' experiences of professional support at the maternity ward2016In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 37, no 10, p. 1067-1081Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We studied the experience of professional support among first-time mothers in relation to a scale measuring professional support in maternity care. We used a qualitative study with both an inductive and deductive approach and interviewed nine mothers. Our findings, both inductive and deductive, suggest that first-time mothers expect professional support in their transition into motherhood, building a bridge between two worlds. The first meeting, acknowledging individual needs, and supporting partner participation were important for good support. Maternity care should be organized with a focus on availability and professional support for mothers and the increased participation of their partners. Our scale of measurement can be useful but needs some development.
