MORE PAULETTI, Jéssica; PORTELLA RIBEIRO, Juliane  y  CORREA SOARES, Marilu. Obstetric violence: manifestations posted on Facebook virtual groups. Enfermería (Montevideo) [online]. 2020, vol.9, n.1, pp.3-20.  Epub 01-Jun-2020. ISSN 1688-8375.

The present study aimed to analyze the manifestations about obstetric violence posted on Facebook groups. This is a qualitative, exploratory and descriptive research held in public groups hosted on the social network Facebook that address the theme of obstetric violence. Data collection was carried out in September 2018. The material for analysis consisted of 44 posts published in 2017, submitted to Minayo's operative proposal. With regard specifically to the typology of the posts, it was found that it is diverse, consisting mainly of the dissemination of news, stories and personal experiences, and the publication of quotes of catch phrases. As a gap in the assistance to women in the pregnancy-puerperal period that culminates in obstetric violence, the posts selected for this study showed the denial of their rights and the actions taken by health professionals that imply negligence, malpractice and recklessness. The posts show that, despite the policy for humanization of delivery and birth, even today, practices that seek to guarantee the main role of women and the respect for their rights in the pregnancy-puerperal period have little recognition in the social sphere, reflecting on a violent care practice.
