Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Yoga under graviditet har blivit allt mer populärt i Sverige och västvärlden på senare tid. Tidigare studier föreslår att yoga för gravida kan ge ökat välmående under graviditet, minska förlossningsrädsla och öka prenatal anknytning. Idag finns yoga för gravida att tillgå på privata yoga- och träningscenter, samt på vissa mödravårdscentraler. Det verkar dock finnas en kunskapslucka i forskningen angående barnmorskors upplevelse av att arbeta med yoga för gravida. Syfte: Beskriva barnmorskors upplevelse av att arbeta med yoga för gravida. Metod: Åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med barnmorskor som har erfarenhet av att leda klasser i yoga för gravida. Kvalitativ innehållsanalys användes för analys av materialet. Resultat: Fyra kategorier identifierades. Kategorierna var Förlossningsförberedelse, Välmående under graviditet, Prenatal anknytning samt Avrådan eller Anpassning. Vidare framträdde 11 underkategorier och ett övergripande tema: Trygghet och Tillit. Slutsats: Barnmorskorna upplever att yoga under graviditet kan bidra till ökat välmående både psykiskt och fysiskt, skapar möjlighet till prenatal anknytning samt förbereder de gravida inför förlossningen. Barnmorskorna betonar att deras erfarenheter från barnmorskeprofessionen ger en djupare dimension i yogaklasserna och gör att de kan leda yoga för gravida på ett säkert sätt. Klinisk tillämpbarhet: Studien kan inspirera barnmorskor till att arbeta med, eller rekommendera yoga för gravida samt inspirera till vidare studier.

Abstract [en]

Background: Yoga during pregnancy has become increasingly popular in Sweden and the western world in recent years. Earlier studies suggest that yoga for pregnant women may increase well-being during pregnancy, reduce fear for giving birth and increase prenatal attachment. Today, yoga for pregnant women is available at private yoga and fitness centres and at certain maternity clinics. However, there seems to be a gap of knowledge about midwifes experiences of working with yoga for pregnant women. Aim: Describe midwives experiences of working with prenatal yoga. Method: Eight semistructured interviews were conducted with midwives who have experience instructing yoga classes during pregnancy. Qualitative content analysis was used for analysis of the material. Result: Four main categories were identified. The categories were Birth Preparation, Well-being during Pregnancy, Prenatal attachment, and Contraindication or Adjustment. Furthermore, there were 11 subcategories and an overall theme: Sense of security and Trust. Conclusion: The midwives experience that yoga during pregnancy can contribute to increased well-being, both mentally and physically, establish prenatal attachment and prepare the pregnant women for childbirth. The midwives emphasize that their professional experiences in midwifery contributes to a deeper dimension in the yoga classes, enabling a safe practise during pregnancy. Clinical application: The study can inspire midwives to work with, or recommend prenatal yoga and inspire to further studies.
