The birth of a first child is an important event in a woman’s life. Delivery psychological impacts vary depending on whether delivery has been positively or negatively experienced. Delivery experience determinants have been identified but the understanding of their expression according to the mode of delivery is poorly documented. The purpose of the study was to determine important elements associated with women’s first delivery experience according to the mode of delivery: vaginal or caesarean section.
Giving birth is one of the most important events in life, which is a highly individual experience. Health care around childbirth should be based on evidence; therefore further research is needed about women’s experiences of childbirth in order to develop the care requested by the women. During the last two decades, empowerment has been increasingly used in the midwifery context to strengthen the woman and her family. It is of importance to empower women to become more involved in maternal and child healthcare. In order to involve mother, more knowledge is needed about their own experiences and reflections.
The experience of giving birth has long-term implications for a woman’s health and well-being. The birth experience and satisfaction with birth have been associated with several factors and emotional dimensions of care and been shown to influence women’s overall assessment. Individualized emotional support has been shown to empower women and increase the possibility of a positive birth experience. How women assess their experience and the factors that contribute to a positive birth experience are of importance for midwives and other caregivers. The aim of this study was to describe women’s experience of a very positive birth experience.
