Abstract [sv]

Background: The prevalence of sphincter rupture during childbirth has increased in Sweden from half percent to three percent from 1973 to 1993. Women who undergo planned home birth have sphincter injuries to a smaller extent than women who undergo planned hospital births. Objective: The purpose of this study was to describe women’s experience of the last stages of delivery during planned home birth. Design: Inductive content analysis of 150 randomly selected delivery reports. The delivery reports were gathered as a reply to an open question in a previously conducted survey. Findings: The woman´s confidence in the natural birthing process emerged as the overall theme of the delivery reports. Fourteen subcategories and five categories emerged during the analysis process: experience of support, physical experience, psychological experience, experience of birthplace and birth position and the woman’s awareness during birth. Conclusion: The support from the surrounding people was very important for the women and they felt calm and secure in the home environment. The women often gave birth in a birthing position that led to a reduced risk of perineal tears. Many risk factors for sphincter injuries were eliminated for the women who went thru planned home birth. For example the women often had experiences of prior deliveries and further no medical instruments were used during late stages of delivery in planned home births.
