PIO, Danielle Abdel Massih; PERACOLI, José Carlos  e  BETTINI, Roseli Vernasque. Psychic experiences of women with preeclampsia: a qualitative study. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.2, pp. 115-127. ISSN 2177-093X.

Hypertensive disorders are the most common complications during pregnancy constituting, in Brazil, the first leading cause of maternal mortality. This study investigated the experience of pregnancy and the constitution of the mother-baby affective relationship in pregnant women diagnosed with preeclampsia. The study included nine pregnant women cared for at a Maternal-Infant Unity in an inner city in São Paulo state. Semi-structured interviews were conducted, with thematic content analysis. The four themes identified in the interviews were the following: feelings related to the discovery of the pregnancy; expectations: from the ambivalence to the mother-baby bond; motherhood and mothering: vital crisis or risk?; and hypertension during pregnancy: psychosomatic perspectives and emotional effects of the disease. The desire of motherhood was manifested, despite the risk, with a mental representation of the baby and expectations of overcoming insecurity related to the maternal role.
