Abstract [sv]

Förlossningskrisen beskrivs som en kris som eskalerat under 2021. Problematiken har däremot pågått under många år. Denna studie syftade till att undersöka barnmorskors upplevelse av den psykosociala arbetsmiljön inom förlossningsvården. Kvalitativ metod tillämpades. Studien genomfördes i Sverige. En respondent valdes ut genom ett bekvämlighetsurval och resterande fem via ett snöbollsurval. Semistrukturerade intervjuer tillämpades via videosamtal och insamlad data analyserades med hjälp av tematisk analys. Resultatet visade delvis i linje med tidigare forskning, att respondenterna upplevde sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö som påfrestande men meningsfull. Underbemanningen äventyrade patientsäkerheten och respondenternas möjlighet till att ge de stöd de önskade till patienterna begränsades. De främsta negativa faktorerna utöver underbemanningen var den höga graden av stress som respondenterna upplevde på arbetsplatsen, missnöjet kring att de tvingades arbeta treskift samt känslan av att de inte blev sedda. Stöd och gemenskap kollegorna emellan samt meningsfullheten i yrket beskrevs som bidragande faktorer till att respondenterna ville arbeta kvar inom förlossningsvården.

Abstract [en]

The maternity care crisis is described as a crisis that has escalated in 2021. Although the same issue has been ongoing for many years. This study aimed to examine midwives' experience of the psychosocial work environment within maternity care. Qualitative method was applied. The study was conducted in Sweden. The first respondent was selected through a convenience sample and the other five through a snowball sample. Semi-structured interviews were applied via video calls and the data were analysed using thematic analysis. The results showed partly in line with previous research, that midwives experienced their psychosocial work environment demanding but also meaningful. Understaffing compromised patient safety and limited respondents ability to provide the support they wanted to patients. In addition to understaffing, the main negative factors identified in the study were the high levels of stress experienced by respondents in the workplace, dissatisfaction with having to work three shifts and the feeling that they were not being seen. Support and community among colleagues and the meaningfulness of the profession were described as contributing factors to respondents' desire to remain working in maternity care
