LEITE, Renata Ramalho Queiroz  e  FROTA, Ana Maria Monte Coelho. The desire to be mother and the barrier of infertility: a phenomenological understanding. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp. 151-160. ISSN 1809-6867.

Shaking the parental project of many couples, infertility affects several dimensions of the subject life. This situation is more peculiar to women, for not coresponde the expectations of a world predominantly fertile. This study sought to understand how infertility affects the life and female self-image of women with infertility problem which went through a treatment of in vitro fertilization, seeking to identify the meanings they attach to maternity and femininity. The heideggeriana phenomenology was adopted as theoretical and methodological support for this study. Through semi-structured interview, was done a phenomenological listening of four women who were at different existential moments in relation to cycle of in vitro fertilization treatment. It's possible to realize that at the same time it creates great expectations, making possible the achievement of desired pregnancy, the treatment mobilizes strong emotional reactions.
