BERNAL ROLDAN, MARÍA CARMEN; MUNOZ DE RODRIGUEZ, LUCY  e  RUIZ DE CARDENAS, CARMEN HELENA. The feeling of loss and abandonment among pregnant displaced women -Bogotá. av.enferm. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.2, pp.22-35. ISSN 0121-4500.

This research concentrates on the displaced population of our country, specifically pregnant displaced women, and along the research line of Prenatal Maternal Care from the nursing Faculty of the National University, i.e. from the "Enfermería Transcultural de la Facultad de Enfermería, of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia". We followed Leininger’s which sees the human being as a subject immerse in a network of social relations and in the midst of a specific context, where such aspects permeate into behavior, i.e. that culture in which the subject believes and lives is part of the care practices. We used the ethnic nursing method proposed by Leininger (1985), with the intent of exploring the meaning of care for the pregnant displaced women and her unborn child, from the émic (native perspective), in Bogotá (sub municipalities of Suba and Ciudad Bolívar). The participants were displaced people from the Provinces of Tolima, Arauca, Cundinamarca, Caquetá, Bolívar, Guainía and Cauca. Their ages varied from 14 to 34 years, and the time of displacement was between two months and a year. Data was gathered via individual and group interviews (twelve participants) and via observation, and we applied Spradley’s (1980) ethnographic analysis: domains (categories of meaning that include other minor categories) with the systematic relations, taxonomy (set of categories), component analysis (the search for associated attributes with cultural symbols) and issues (of the highest abstraction level). We obtained the issue of resilience of hope in the midst of the difficulty of being displaced and pregnant with the sub components of: the loss and abandonment as well as the way forward.
