Currently in Brazil Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) is considered a public health problem by its high prevalence, incidence and mortality risk, generating a costly and difficult prognosis. In this context, the present study makes a bridge between the pregnancy phenomenon in post-transplant. It's goal is to understand how the kidney transplanted women experience pregnancy, considering that both pregnancy and renal involvement bring significant changes to their life. Therefore, we used a qualitative approach, adopting the existential phenomenology as a theoretical and methodological support. As participants, two women gave open interviews; their narratives were analyzed using as reference the direction of Analytical method proposed by Dulce Critelli. Throughout the testimonials, it is made understood that the anguish, in its ontological dimension, had taken place ontically beacause of Fear/Scare from the graft loss and the loss of their own expected child, beside the ban on breastfeeding as psycho-emotional risk fator. The caring towards oneself and towards others went through all events in a pro-healing process - in order to take care of existing in the world-whit-others. The psychological care to kidney transplanted pregnant women and their families proved to be essential matter on the happening of attention guided by ethical príncipes.
