MARCOS, Cristina Moreira; GUEDES, Marconi Martins da Costa  e  MOTTA, Juliana. Maternity and forclusion: Son-kakon equation. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2021, vol.33, n.2, pp. 321-333. ISSN 0103-5665.

Maternity is linked to the woman's relationship with the lack; however, the lack is not always linked to the phallus, to castration. What is the place of the child, where is the place for maternity, when there is no recourse to phallic significance? A clinical case allows us to question the place of the child when the phallic significance is not operable and the pregnancy reveals the forclusion. A passage to the act during the pregnancy shows how the baby can become a "kakon", a bad object to be eliminated. The anguish experienced in this case is not the neurotic signal anguish, which frames the fantasy constructed in response to the Other's desire. It is a huge, unconcealed anguish. For the psychotic, it is not possible to respond to the Other's desire for fantasy. If in the neurosis, the object a, extracted from castration, can function as a response to the Other, in psychosis the subject is identified with that object. He embodies the object and the anguish runs out of containment. The baby is its own foreign object, the inner enemy to be eliminated, the true "kakon".
