Sammanfattning

Background: Midwives have the responsibility to strengthen normal birth and promote breastfeeding; this challenge also includes women with chronic illness, such as type 1 diabetes. The transition to motherhood in pregnant women with type 1 diabetes is influenced by their constant struggle to achieve normoglycemia and negative feelings such as stress, anxiety and hopelessness are present. Aim: To describe the design of a woman-centered web-support for pregnant women and new mothers with type 1 diabetes. Method: A web-support has been developed using participatory design. A research project management group had the responsibility of steering the project forward. Different stakeholders including, midwifery, medical, nursing and target group expertise participated in the development. The web-support is implemented through a randomized controlled trial. Result: The developed web-support consists of three parts: 1) Specific information about pregnancy, childbirth, and early motherhood in relation to type 1 diabetes, where the challenge is to balance the core values of normal childbearing with diabetes related issues. 2) A self-care diary, including a device for documenting and evaluating blood glucose levels, insulin doses, food intake and physical activities. This enables the woman to keep in control of her own health. 3) A forum for peer support through communication between women and mothers in pregnancy and early motherhood. This enables sharing of similar experiences and of strategies to handle daily life. Clinical relevance: Well-being in terms of joy of childbearing, birth and motherhood could be achieved by addressing diabetes related health risks and complications in a manner that emphasizes the normality of being pregnant, giving birth and breastfeeding. A balancing act between focusing on potential risks and normal pregnancy related processes.
