The meta-categories were the following: 1) Health professionals; 2) Pregnancy, partum and postpartum; 3) Communication; 4) Child nutrition; 5) Feelings; 6) Others. The mothers perceived as exciting this new experience and expressed feelings of fear, anguish and high sensitiveness. These feelings are increased by the information received from the family circle and the professionals which is referred low and contradictory. All professionals were positively considered, specially the midwife. The following negative experiences were identified: contractions, dilation and delivery.
