My research interests focus primarily on pregnant women in vulnerable contexts and prenatal nursing care. Soon, I will be submitting my doctoral dissertation, a descriptive and interpretative qualitative study aimed at better understanding the prenatal nursing care experience of pregnant women in vulnerable contexts. The experience of prenatal nursing follow-up has a significant influence on women’s use of health services. The nurse’s pregnancy follow-up can contribute to preventing health complications for both the mother and the fetus. In my doctoral project, I identified the factors influencing the experience of prenatal nursing care for these women, the way in which the relationship between the pregnant women and the nurse influences the experience of prenatal nursing care, as well as avenues for improving the prenatal nursing care experience of pregnant women in vulnerable contexts.
