Abstract

Objective To determine the degree of satisfaction of women after childbirth at the Hospital Universitario Materno-Infantil of Gran Canaria (HUMIC) and to establish possible relationships between the degree of satisfaction and the variables studied. Method A cross-sectional, descriptive, observational study with an analytical component. The study population comprised women who gave birth at the HUMIC in November 2018, recruited through consecutive non-probabilistic sampling. The Spanish version of the Childbirth Experience Questionnaire (CEQ-E) was used (questionnaire with 4 domains: own capacity’, professional support, perceived safety and participation/analytical model 2). In a first phase a descriptive analysis was made, and in a second phase an inferential analysis to explore the association between different variables. Results The total sample comprised 257 women (n=257). The total score using the CEQ was 3.24 (SD .37 points). No statistically significant differences were found in the final CEQ score between the women who had a spontaneous delivery versus induction-stimulation (P=.563) or between primiparous versus multiparous women (P=.060). The women whose labour lasted 12hours or less (P=.024), without perineal trauma (P=.021) and those who had not undergone episiotomy (P=.002) achieved a better final CEQ score. Instrumental delivery (forceps) versus normal delivery is associated with lower scores with respect to the final CEQ-E score (P=≤.001). Conclusions Women's overall satisfaction after delivery in HUMIC was high. Instrumental delivery seems to be associated with lower perceived satisfaction. Aspects such as fear and fatigue in labour could affect satisfaction negatively. These aspects can be improved by establishing strategies to increase comfort and minimise pregnant women's fear of labour.
