Abstract [en]

Background: In Sweden, approximately 440 children die in intrauterine fetal death annually. Losing a child before birth causes great sadness and despair to the parents. Midwives' have a significant role in supporting and nurturing parents in those situations, which is often experienced as a difficult and emotional task. Aim: To describe midwives' experiences associated to intrauterine fetal death. Method: Focus group interviews made with midwives working at a delivery ward in central Sweden, data were analyzed with  qualitative content analysis. Result: The data analysis resulted in ten subcategories,four categories and an overall theme. The categories were Presence, A meaningful task, Being both professional and a human being, and Support at work. The overall theme was To make meaning of the seemingly meaningless. The midwives needed time to be able to be fully present with the parents. According to the midwives it was a meaningful experience to be supportive and make a difference for the parents. To be professional while at the same time dealing with their own feelings appeared as a difficult task. They received the best support from their colleagues. Conclusion: Supporting the parents and creating a memorable moment with their stillborn baby was experienced as the most eager in these situations, and made the task meaningful for the midwives.
