Abstract [en]

Background: A change in the pattern of movement of her unborn baby could be indicative that the baby might die. Aim: To study mothers' experiences during the time prior to receiving news that their baby has died. Method: Interviews with 26 mothers. Results: Premonition that something had happened to their baby, a sense based on a lack of movements were experienced. Six categories describe the mother's insight that the baby's life was threatened: not feeling in touch with their baby; worry' feeling something is wrong; not understanding the unbelievable; wanting information; and being certain that their baby had died. The overarching theme "There is something wrong" was formulated. Conclusion: The mother could not understand the unbelievable: that the baby had died in utero. Implications: Mother's should be cautioned to trust their insights and seek medical advice if they are concerned over the lack of movement from the unborn baby
