Keywords:Nurses midwives, Obstetric nursing, Nursing care, Workload
Objetivo: To know the factors that influence the improvement of obstetric nurse care in the delivery process. Methods: Qualitative, descriptive exploratory study conducted at a maternity school located in the city of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil with 20 obstetric nurses from the Obstetric Center. Data collection took place through interviews, guided by a semi-structured form between the months of June and September 2017. The data were subjected to the Categorical Thematic Content Analysis proposed by Franco. Results: Six categories emerged, which presented factors that collaborate and hinder the care of the obstetric nurse in the delivery process. These address the power and gender relations between health professionals; recognition of the obstetric nurse; physical space and bed occupation; interaction between woman / companion, among others. Final considerations: The factors indicated by obstetric nurses reveal the need for improvements in working conditions by managers and changes in the conduct / behavior of professionals.
