Déterminants socio-culturels du recours tardif à la Consultation Prénatale (CPN) dans l’aire sanitaire de Djébonoua en Côte d’Ivoire

The purpose of this research is to estimate the level of late use of prenatal consultation (beyond the first trimester of pregnancy) with a view to analysing the socio-cultural mechanisms underlying it from a socio-anthropological perspective. The quantitative and qualitative survey was carried out in the Saafouê of Djébonoua, a baoulé subgroup, located in the center of Côte d'Ivoire. The review of birth records allowed to describe the socio-demographic profile of all births (1876) who used the ANC service at least once over the period 2011-2015. Using a semi-directional interview guide, one-on-one interviews were conducted with 5 obstetrical culture scholars, selected by reasoned choice, and 15 pregnant women who had delayed ANC use, accidentally enrolled. Quantitative data were analysed statistically while the technique of thematic analysis was used for qualitative data. The results of the study showed that the rate of late use of ANC estimated at 88.6% remains a concern despite the efforts made. This rate is poorly influenced by the socio-demographic profile. On the other hand, the socio-cultural logics linked to pregnancy and the child, the cultural interpretation of pregnancy complications and the social perception of ANC produce various dynamics that place the use of modern prenatal care services at the bottom of priorities in Saafouê’ area. The improvement of the attendance of the ANC service, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy, requires therefore the consideration of the socio-cultural environment.
