Abstract [en]

Perceptions and experiences of war, violence and migration and related sexual and reproductive health among Somali refugee women in Sweden.

Background and objectives: Sweden has during the latest six years experienced a twofold increase of Somali born refugees. Elevated levels of pregnancy related morbidity and perinatal complications are seen among Somali born refugee women.  Research has shown links between a mother´s prenatal stress and anxiety and the health of the child the first year. Furthermore, violence towards a mother-to-be has negative health effects and increases the neonatal mortality The specific aim in the current study was to explore perceptions and experiences of war, violence and migration among Somali refugee women in Sweden. This in order to find strategies in caring for birth giving Somali refugee women, with possible experiences of violence, which would benefit the woman and society at large.

Material and methods: Qualitative individual audio-recorded interviews were conducted with Somali born refugee women in fertile ages. Interviews were held in three steps: 1) personal narratives by newly arrived Somali born women, 2) perceptions and views out of a depersonalized case and 3) reflections upon emerging themes by female key persons of Somali origin. Thematic analysis according to Clarke and Braun was applied.

Preliminary results: The analysis resulted in two main themes: Lives controlled by the presence of violence and Sacrificing for the sake of a future. Access to education, livelihood opportunities and health facilities has been strictly limited by the long-lasting civil war. Escalated violations of sexual and reproductive health and rights were a common triggering factor for finalizing escape. Lives have been extensively marked by family separations. Patience created by war and a pragmatic orientation in life have made survival possible.

Conclusions: To be presented at the congress

Implications for practice: The results will provide increased evidence based knowledge useful to midwives when caring and supporting birth giving refugee women.
