Abstract [en]

Deficiency of folic acid increases the risk for neural tube defects among newborn children and megaloblastic anaemia in the mother. The aim of this study was to make a survey of how midwives working in maternity health care, family planning guidance, and specialist prenatal care in a Swedish county inform women of childbearing age about folic acid. The questionnaire study showed that 79% of the midwives informed the women about folic acid. Usually, the women received information first when they asked for it and midwifes were less prone to inform young women about folic acid. 87% of the midwives felt that they did not know enough about folic acid. Conclusions: Midwives play an important role in information about the need of folic acid intake for women in childbearing age. Changes in local routines, guidelines and further education of midwifes would subsequently provide information about the importance of folic acid to women in childbearing age.

Abstract [sv]

Barnmorskor inom förebyggande mödrahälsovård och preventivmedelsrådgivning har en unik möjlighetatt informera kvinnor i fertil ålder om vikten av folsyratillskott. Folsyrabrist utgör en risk för neuralrörsdefekter hosnyfödda barn och megaloblastisk anemi hos modern. Socialstyrelsen har utfärdat rekommendationer till bl a barnmorskor att informera om ökat folsyraintag.

Vår studie visar att 79 procent av barnmorskorna informeradekvinnor om folsyra. Det vanligaste var att barnmorskor informerade när kvinnorna själva efterfrågade detta. Kvinnor som besöker ungdomsmottagningar informeras inte om folsyra.

87 procent av barnmorskorna ansåg sig ha otillräckligkunskap om folsyra.

Om barnmorskor ser folsyra som allmänt hälsobefrämjandeför kvinnor i fertil ålder borde följden bli attalla kvinnor informeras. Lokala rutiner och vårdprogram skulle ytterligare underlätta för barnmorsko ratt ge folsyrainformation.
