AGUIAR, Cláudia de Azevedo  e  TANAKA, Ana Cristina dʼAndretta. Collective memories of women who have experienced maternal near miss: health needs and human rights. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.9, e00161215.  Epub 19-Set-2016. ISSN 1678-4464.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0102-311X00161215.

The collective memories of women that have experienced maternal near miss can help elucidate serious obstetric events, like maternal death. Their experience is authentic and representative, with the construction of a common identity. This identity lends quality to a group's memory, and such memory is thus a social phenomenon. The study analyzed the experience of twelve women who nearly died during the gestational and postpartum cycle. The thematic oral history method was used, from the perspective of health needs and human rights. Six collective memories comprised the discourses: unmet health needs; healthcare deficiencies; denial of contact with the newborn child; violation of rights; absence of demand for rights; and compensation for unmet rights and needs. To understand these women's health needs is to acknowledge the women as bearers of rights and to individualize care, respecting their autonomy, guaranteeing access to technologies, and establishing an effective bond with health professionals.
