Evaluation of the Psychological Consequences of Complicated Childbirth


Brief description of study

Prospective, non-interventional, monocentric, case-control study

Detailed Study Description

The post-traumatic stress state affects up to 6.2% of patients at 2 months post partum.

Emergency cesarean section and rescue hemorrhage are identified risk factors for postpartum stress disorder or postpartum depression.

These complications (emergency cesarean section and hemorrhage of delivery) alter the mother-child relationship and cognitive development of the child.

The experience of an emergency Cesarean section or a haemorrhage of deliverance generates apprehension about a subsequent pregnancy. Some patients abandon a future pregnancy project for fear of reliving these experiences.

Currently, at the southern hospital, the risk factors for developing a state of post-traumatic stress are not sought by the care teams. No specific follow-up is planned for patients who have had an emergency caesarean section or hemorrhage of delivery.

The investigators wish to study the psychological consequences of emergency cesarean section and rescue haemorrhage, the risk factors for post-traumatic stress disorder after emergency cesarean section or hemorrhage of delivery, and their consequences on the mother-child relationship to better identify situations at risk of psychological trauma and provide appropriate care for patients (consultation with a postpartum psychologist).
