Abstract

ANTOLINEZ RUIZ, Patricia  and  LAFAURIE VILLAMIL, María Mercedes. STRESS AND WORK OVERLOAD DURING PREGNANCY: EXPERIENCES OF PHYSICIANS OF THE CAREGIVE SECTOR IN BOGOTA. Hacia promoc. Salud [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.1, pp.84-100. ISSN 0121-7577.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/hpsal.2017.22.1.7.

Objective: To explore how their pregnancies were from the experiences of doctors working in the health care sector in Bogotá. Materials and Methods: A qualitative phenomenological study was conducted using in-depth interviews, among voluntary participants between November and December 2015; the analysis of the data was performed using the software Atlas.ti 7. Results: The respondents believe that they worked in excess in their pregnancies. Stress caused by their activity and workload are mentioned as occupational risk situations for their pregnancies by the participants who in seven cases had pregnant complications (preterm labor and birth, miscarriage, hemorrhage, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia and gestational hypertension among others). The employment conditions often by service delivery are valued as difficult by several of the participants. They recommend reducing labor time and also that the work conditions of the health organizations meet their health needs. Conclusions: It is imperative to advance in the study of the possible relationship between workload and pregnancy complications in women physicians; insist in the importance of care during pregnancy for physician's women and persevere in achieving regulations developments especially on health workers' protection during their pregnancies.
