Abstract / Bemerkung
INTRODUCTION: Approximately 21% of Germany's inhabitants have been born abroad or are of direct descent of immigrants. A positive birth experience has an effect on a woman's mental health and her future family planning choices. While international studies showed that immigrant women are less satisfied with their birth experience, no such study has been conducted in Germany until now.; METHODS: At our center of tertiary care in Berlin, with approximately 50% immigrants among patients, pregnant women of at least 18years of age were offered participation in this study. A modified version of the Migrant Friendly Maternity Care Questionnaire (MFMCQ) designed by Gagnon et al. in German, English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Turkish was used. We compared non-immigrant women to immigrant women and women with direct descent of immigrants. For certain analysis, the latter two groups were included together under the category "migration background".; RESULTS: During the study period, 184 non-immigrant, 214 immigrant women and 62 direct descendants of immigrants were included. The most frequent countries of origin were Syria (19%), Turkey (17%), and Lebanon (9%). We found a slight difference between groups regarding age (non-immigrants: mean 33years versus women with any migration background: mean 31) as well as parity with more non-immigrants delivering their first child. No difference in the satisfaction with care was observed between immigrant and any migration background groups (p≥0.093 in the two-sided Fisher's exact test). At least 75.8% of all participating women reported complete satisfaction with care during labor, birth and after birth. Interestingly, the level of German language proficiency did not influence the immigrant patient's satisfaction with care.; CONCLUSION: The study results show no difference regarding overall satisfaction with care during labor and birth despite a relevant language barrier. We are for the first time providing the MFMCQ in German and Turkish. Further future analyses on the impact of patient expectations on satisfaction with care will be conducted.
