Abstract [en]

Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe Swedish womens perceptions of the qualityof intrapartal care that they received and the subjective importance they ascribe to their care.Design: The study was nested within a Swedish national survey of intrapartal care. Thewomen whose care was investigated were invited to participate in the current study by themidwife who attended the birth. A total of 1173 women agreed to answer a questionnaireabout quality of general care and quality of specific intrapartal care two months postpartum. The questions were posed in two ways, perceived reality (PR) and subjectiveimportance (SI).Findings: 739 women (63%) returned their questionnaires. PR and SI for quality of generalcare were generally high (PR range 2.98 -3.81; SI range 2.85-3.85 , out of a possible 4) andfor quality of specific intrapartal care (PR range 3.15-3.86; SI range 3.23-3.86, out of apossible 4). Twelve items had statistically significantly higher scores for SI compared to PR.Eighty-one percent of the women fully or mostly agreed that the birth of their child was apositive experience.Orginality: The way in which questions about intrapartal care are posed is reflected in theway they are answered answers. In this study we have therefore asked not only how care wasperceived but also what importance individual women ascribed to different areas of their care.The questionnaire in this study allow identification of areas where what is, could be better.
