SANTOS, Flávia Andréia Pereira Soares dos et al. Autonomy for obstetric nurse on low-risk childbirth care. Rev. Bras. Saude Mater. Infant. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp.471-479.  Epub 22-Jul-2019. ISSN 1519-3829.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1806-93042019000200012.

Objectives:

to understand the cultural context presented in hospitals and its relation to the obstetric nurse's autonomous practice on low-risk childbirth care.

Methods:

ethnographic research performed in three public maternities in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. Three managers and twenty-three obstetric nurses participated in this research.

Results:

distinctive on cultural, organizational and structural aspects of the hospital institution interfering directly with the obstetric nurse's autonomous practice. Among these aspects, professional appreciation on low-risk childbirth care contributes for the nurse's autonomy

Conclusions:

it was noticed that obstetric nurses undergo different contexts of action, which directly interfere with their autonomy on low-risk childbirth care and their decisionmaking abilities. It is necessary, then, to eradicate the relation of dominance and submission that it is still imposed by medical hegemony.
