The objective of this historical-social study is to analyze the battle strategies in the process of implementing humanized practice at the Alexander Fleming maternity. The method used was oral thematic history. The analysis was performed using data triangulation, by articulating the oral statements with the written documents. The foundations of the study are the theoretical notions of field, habitus, symbolic power, symbolic battle and capital of the sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. The results showed that the inclusion of nurses in delivery care occurred through human resource capacity for this project and an intensive training. By being inserted in the center obstetric nurses have created their own space for action and developed a protocol of care. Obstetrical nurses, by means of battle their strategies, have taken over areas and positions that distinguished them for the development of humanized practices that agree with their updated habitus.
