Résumé (français)  :

METHODOLOGIE: Phénoménologie descriptive.

LIEU: Site en Nouvelle Zelande.

PARTICIPANTS: 38 femmes (âge moyen 33 ans, 32% de primipares) de 4 pays (Nouvelle Zélande, Etats Unis, Australie, et Royaume Uni) ayant subi un état de stress post-traumatique (ESPT) impurable à un accouchement traumatisant (ces femmes
rapportent que le diagnostique a été établi par un médecin) et disposer à exprimer leurs expériences. Le temps écoulé entre l’accouchement traumtaique et l’étude varie de 6 semaines à 14 ans.

METHODES: Ces femmes ont été recrutées par l’intermédiare de l’association d’entraide "Trauma and Birth Stress", dont le but est d’aider les femmes dont l’accouchement a été traumatique, ainsi que de sensibiliser les professionnels de la santé et le grand public sur l’ESPT.Nous avons demandé à ces femmes d’écrire leurs expériences d’ESPT avec autant de détails qu’elles le désiraient. 2 femmes ont écrit à la main puis envoyé leur témoignage par la poste; 36 ont envoyé leur témoignage par email.

Abstract (English)  :

DESIGN: Descriptive phenomenology.

SETTING: A website hosted in New Zealand.

PARTICIPANTS: 38 mothers (mean age 33 y, 32% primipara) from 4 countries (New Zealand, United States, Australia, and United Kingdom) who had experienced PTSD attributable to birth trauma (women reported that the diagnosis was made by a healthcare professional) and were willing to articulate their experiences. Length of time from birth trauma to study participation ranged from 6 weeks to 14 years.

METHODS: Women were recruited through Trauma and Birth Stress, a charitable trust in New Zealand founded to support women who had experienced birth trauma and to educate healthcare professionals and the general public about PTSD after childbirth. Women were asked to describe in writing their experiences of PTSD after childbirth in as much detail as they wished. 2 women hand wrote and sent their stories by post; 36 submitted their stories as email attachments.
