FILING OF GUILT ON PRIMIPAROUS CESAREAN PARTURIENTS AND IDENTIFICATION TO MATERNAL ROLE.
The significance of the African culture based on natural, simple and obvious nature of childbirth in primiparous parturient creates an obsession with normality , leading them to refute the idea of medicalization. Thus, many women experience a huge disappointment or a sense of failure, incompetence , when surgery is necessary for their delivery ( Neuhaus et al. 1994). Interviews with six parturient primiparous cesarean section , have enabled us to understand that the cesarean may have a negative impact on the emotional situation of women beyond the desire to save the mother and the child who is highlighted in the practice. Because of their membership in a cultural environment demanding African primiparous parturient may experience a disproportionate degree of guilt about a mode of delivery that may not be a problem in another context. Creating a split between physical birth and the imaginary birth , biomedical system creates a cesarean section in parturients and lack a sense of lack. They feel guilty for not having been able to repeat the act posed by women of their environment for generations. This feeling of overwhelming guilt and prevents weakening to identify the role that culture has assigned to mothers.
Key words: birth , guilt , identification, caesarean section
