SILVA, Susan Lusca da; OGAKI, Henrique Abe; PICCININI, Cesar Augusto  e  LOPES, Rita de Cássia Sobreira. The transition to parenting of a heterosexual couple who resorted to egg donation. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.3, pp. 1-22. ISSN 1982-1247.

This study aimed to understand the parenting experience of a heterosexual couple who resorted to egg donation and who had triplets. The couple responded individually to interviews about motherhood and paternity in three periods: pregnancy, three months and the babies' first year of life. After repeated readings of the interviews, the clinical report was constructed. The results revealed questions from the mother about her own motherhood and an exacerbated compensation in the care of the babies to supply the non-consanguineous connection with the children. In addition, doubts about the disclosure of the triplets' origin showed anguish and helplessness in the context of egg donation.
