ALVES, Camila Neumaier et al. Prenatal care and culture: an interface in nursing practice. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.265-271. ISSN 1414-8145.


To know the care practices and cultural values from nurses when assisting pregnant women.


This is an ethnonursing study conducted with five nurses working in low-risk prenatal care. The research was carried out from March to October 2013 by observing and interviewing each informant, in four units of the basic health service of a city in Rio Grande do Sul. Data were analyzed according to the guidelines proposed by Leininger.


The nursing care has transcended technicist conducts and has been influenced by cultural factors of each nurse’s individual perception.


Promoting care permeated by culture is a needed interface in nursing, since that recognizing the sociocultural context of pregnancy allows identifying the ways to perform a culturally congruent care.
