Sammanfattning (abstract):
Background: In Jordan, as in other countries, the majority of women give birth in public hospitals where the midwives are the main birth attendants. Although most women have trust in their midwives; there are studies describing dissatisfaction of childbirth experience, fears associated with experiencing painful births and ineffective pain management during childbirth. Thus, there is a need to understand the Jordanian midwives' attitude towards labour pain from both the midwives and the women’s perspectives. Aim: To explore the Jordanian midwives' attitude towards labour pain by assessing the midwives' knowledge and attitude towards pain and the women's expectations and perceptions of their midwives' approach towards pain. Methods: The research took place in the largest public hospital in Jordan in the postnatal ward and involved midwives and their clients, including 60 midwives (out of 61 randomly sampled midwives), who responded to a study-specific validated survey for midwives (Survey Questionnaire for Midwives), and 360 women (out of 384 sampled women), who responded to a study-specific validated survey for women (Survey Questionnaire for Women). Findings: The study is ongoing. The findings are presented at the NJF conference (May 2016) and as a part of doctoral thesis that should be defended in May 2017.
