Sammanfattning (abstract):
Background: Vaginal Birth After Caesarean section (VBAC) is a relevant question for women having a previous Cesarean Section (CS). Even if VBAC is the recommended choice for most women VBAC rates differs in an international perspective. There is a great deal of research on VBAC but only a few qualitative studies on women’s experiences. These studies are limited to a few countries, notably in countries with low VBAC rates. Studies from countries with high VBAC rates such as Sweden are few. Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the lived experience of VBAC in women living in a region in Sweden; a country with high VBAC rate. Methods: In-depth interviews were conducted with nine women in western part of Sweden one year after their VBAC experience. The data analysis was performed in accordance to a phenomenological reflective lifeworld approach. Results: Results will be presented at the conference. Conclusion: Few qualitative studies on women’s experience of VBAC are published especially in countries with high VBAC rates. Therefore it is important to gain knowledge regarding the women’s experiences in one of these countries. This knowledge can contribute to increase the understanding of women’s experiences, and be used to optimise the care in countries with high as well as low VBAC rates.
