Abstract [en]

ABSTRACTAbout 17% of all deliveries in Akademiska Sjukhuset end with caesarean section. The purpose of the survey was to study parental pairs experience to undergo a caesarean section and experience of information about surgery. The aim was also to see if there were differences between those undergoing a planned or an emergency caesarean section, as well as differences between the birthing women and their partners. 100 couples participated in the study and answered a questionnaire 1-3 days after they had undergone surgery. The result showed that the vast majority of parental pairs were satisfied with the information they received before the caesarean section. They undergoing a planned caesarean section were significantly more satisfied with the information, which is natural when in the acute cases there is to a greater extent lack of time. Comparing only the women in the groups were, however, no difference in the information in its entirety. No difference was seen between women and their partners in terms of information before. The majority experienced care at the delivery ward and surgical department as positive. Those in the planned group experienced more positive emotions before and during surgery than those in the acute group. After the procedure, most of these differences disappeared, however, but the acute cases continued to feel disappointed and depressed afterwards. The women felt more relieved, but also more disappointed than their partners before the cesarean section. These feelings however, were replaced by feelings of fear during and after the procedure. After surgery the women also felt far more disappointed than their partners. Most parental pairs are satisfied with the information and the experience of undergoing a cesarean section at Akademiska Sjukhuset. Those in the acute group experienced more depression and more disappointment after the procedure. Women generally felt more disappointed and frightened afterwards. These groups may therefore need more support and information after the caesarean section.
