NUNES, Mykaella Cristina Antunes  e  MORAIS, Normanda Araujo de. Post-rape pregnancy: considerations based on the Bioecological Approach to Human Development. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.3, pp. 285-296. ISSN 1983-3482.

This is a case study carried out with a victim of sexual violence who became pregnant and had, as a result, the continuity of pregnancy after being denied legal interruption. The objective was to understand the proximal processes lived by the participant from the rejection to the acceptance of gestation from the assumptions of the Bioecological Approach to Human Development (ABDH). Data were collected at a hospital in the city of Fortaleza (Ceará State), through two interviews, with semi-structured characteristics. Four categories of analysis were delineated, ranging from the characteristics of the participant, the changes undertaken over the time, the interference of the contexts to the proximal processes experienced from the phase of rejection to the phase of greater attachment to the pregnancy/child. It was observed that even in adverse situations, as in the case of sexual violence and unwanted pregnancy, it is possible to resignify the experience and to look at the pregnancy/child in another way, mainly due to the interference of other systems involved (family and professionals), also that the understanding of this phenomenon needs to contemplate the multiple aspects involved, as it happened in the case under study, when interpreted in the light of ABDH.
