SILVA, Ana Caroline Dias da  and  PEGORARO, Renata Fabiana. The experience of prenatal care according to women assisted by Public Health System. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.3, pp. 95-107. ISSN 2177-093X.

Prenatal care consists in the reception of the woman from the early stages of her pregnancy. The objective of this study is to understand the experience of prenatal care according to women assisted by Unified Health System (SUS). We have interviewed 11 women, living in the city of Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, in 2015, using a semi-structured interview script composed of: (a) characterization data of each participant; and (b) guiding questions to investigate the course of the pregnancy. The interviews were transcribed in full and submitted to the thematic content analysis. The results pointed that the welcoming attitude from the health team favored the perception of a high-quality prenatal care, which was recognized as a provider of useful information about baby care, and a space for reflecting on physical, psychic and hormonal woman changes that occur during the pregnancy.
