Information seeking during pregnancy : a qualitative study on pregnant womens’ information seeking through social contacts (Engelska)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to gain a deeper understanding of how social contacts can serve as information sources for pregnant women. Furthermore, we wanted to examine how women’s context influences their information seeking and the barriers that can occur during information seeking. The theoretical framework is founded on Tom Wilson's model of information needs as context dependent, and Pamela J. McKenzie's model of information practices in accounts of everyday-life information seeking. In order to answer our questions, eight qualitative interviews with pregnant women were conducted. Four were expecting their first child and the other four were pregnant for the second time. The empirical material was compared and divided into nine categories. By analyzing their context and statements about their information seeking, we could demonstrate how parts of their context affect their information seeking and what women usually do when they use social contacts as an information source. The results show that most women use people who have personal experience of pregnancy as information source. Information is mainly sought by actively seeking or getting information by proxy from their social contacts. They were interested in knowing how other women had experienced pregnancy. The women in this study wanted to know more about how other women felt, rather than to seek medical facts. Furthermore, we found several barriers that prevented women from seeking information, such as lack of useful social contacts and time. In addition, the issue is a sensitive and a personal topic, and personal and cultural differences were also mentioned.
