NOZAWA, Marcia R.  and  SCHOR, Néia. O discurso de parto de mulheres vivenciando a experiência da primeira gestação. Saude soc. [online]. 1996, vol.5, n.2, pp.89-119. ISSN 0104-1290.

This paper is part of a study carried out with a group of women, at a school health centre, experiencing their first gestation. The study aims at developing and evaluating a participative educative action. Such action has been developed from a pedagogic relation perspective based on dialogue and active participation of the women in in the educative process. Thus the methodological framework derived from the concept of freeing education and participation research methodology. Both the data used and analysis perfomed refer to the discussion on delivery - the central issue of the whole educative process. The use of Discourse Analysis as an evaluative tool of the action allowed the identification of the predominantly negative meaning of delivery in the pregnant women's discourse as well as the discussion of the production process of the discourse. Such discussion indicates strategies that promote the overcoming of the negative load that will subsidise the educative practice of health professionals towards this specific clientele group.

Keywords : first gestation; education action; discourse analysis; freaing education; participatory research methodology.
