POSSATI, Andrêssa Batista et al. Humanization of childbirth: meanings and perceptions of nurses. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.4, e20160366.  Epub 07-Ago-2017. ISSN 1414-8145.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/2177-9465-ean-2016-0366.

Objective:

To know the meanings attributed to humanized childbirth by nurses of an obstetric center.

Method:

A qualitative descriptive study was carried out with nurses from a teaching hospital, located in southern Brazil. An operational proposal was used. The participants were six nurses who worked in the service.

Results:

The humanization of childbirth was understood as a set of practices and attitudes based on dialogue, empathy and embracement; the provision of guidelines; the appreciation of parturients' singularities; the performance of procedures proven to be beneficial to maternal and child health and continuous professional updating.

Conclusion:

The humanization of birth is still a challenge in professional practice. The role of women, the respect for their rights and the commitment of health professionals are the foundation of the humanization of childbirth.
