Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Södertörns högskola/Etnologi

Sammanfattning: The aim of this study has been to examine eight Afro-Swedish women's lived experiences of perinatal care in Sweden. The material has been produced through qualitative interviews to investigate the extent to which colonial stereotypes continue to affect Afro-Swedish women in perinatal care. The questions to be answered were "What aspects are recurring in the womens stories about perinatal care in Sweden?" and “In what way are stereotypes created and maintained in perinatal care? Most of the women had encountered various forms of malpractice in perinatal care. At some point the women neither felt seen nor heard and the healthcare staff tended to speak condescendingly to them. Stereotypes in perinatal care can be maintained and created through birth stories by Swedish midwives who have practiced in poor countries such as in Africa. Through these birth stories, a perception is created of how black women give birth versus white women.
