Résumé (français)  :

Le traitement hostile est un obstacle à l’humanisation des soins, lors de l’accouchement, qui vient interférer avec le choix du mode d’accouchement, et il est nécessaire de revoir le concept de violence obstétricale dans toutes ses spécificités et nuances.

Abstract (English)  :

Objective: to analyze the discourses of women and health professionals regarding care during childbirth, considering the situations experienced and the interactions between them during labor and delivery.
Method: this is an interpretative study with a qualitative approach. Discourse Analysis was used as the research method. The research scenarios were seven maternity hospitals, belonging to the public network of the Central-West region of Minas Gerais. Interviews were conducted with 36 laboring mothers, 10 midwives and 14 obstetricians. The collected data were submitted to discourse analysis.

Results: the data were organized into three categories:
1) Witnessed obstetric violence described in the discourse of the midwife: which discusses that even acknowledging the presence of this, they talk of the difficulty of guaranteeing the rights of the mother in labor in the scenario of childbirth;
2) Today everything is obstetric violence: it shows the denial of the existence of this phenomenon in the professional-patient relationship;
3) Here we have no voice: obstetric violence is present, but there is a certain consent the part of women who, in the presence of the birth, forget the way they received assistance.

Conclusion: hostile treatment is one of the obstacles of the humanization of childbirth care, interfering with the choice of delivery method, and it is necessary to review the concept of obstetric violence, considering all its specifics and nuances.
