The Denial of Pregnancy

Even if the consequences ofdenial of pregnancy are most of the time not dramatic for a child, this event is considered a true trauma that can affect any mother-to-be.

What is it?

A pregnant woman may not be aware of her pregnancy: it’s called the denial of pregnancy. It can be partial or complete.

Partial, women is aware that she is pregnant. She became aware by the physiological signs which accompany pregnancy (absence of rules, discomfort…).But because this pregnancy scares him or she refuses, she hides it in his entourage and hides the to herself: she doesn’t follow medically, no examination used and lives from day to day without worrying about the sequence of events. Most of the time, it doesn’t take much weight or hide her curves.
A complete denial is more serious. The expectant mother feels that something in it is happening but completely obscures the reality. Total denial can be characterised by an almost total absence of weight gain, regular bleeding that can be thinking about menstruation, an absence of physiological signs of pregnancy (discomfort, nausea…). She doesn’t feel nor her baby move.
The entourage don’t realize so nothing: as no physical sign lets consider a pregnancy, the companion or even doctors don’t suspect anything. And as this is done, the future mother herself is convinced that nothing happens.

Who is affected?

According to some psychiatrists, the partial denial particularly teenage girls, mainly motivated by fear than others (parents, friends…) not noticing. In general, it is during a medical examination or a visit to their doctor that she is aware of the reality.
Total denial may concern all women of all ages, even the women already mothers. The main danger is the moment of childbirth that women wait at all. It can be accompanied by a moment of great anguish and shock given this situation, then suddenly: a child is born! Childbirth is often unsafe for the baby, without hygiene or medical team. And, taken of panic, the woman can then have the reflex to hide the child somewhere, in order to hide this reality. The child’s life is in danger.

The causes of denial

They are currently difficult to determine accurately. The denial is of psychological origin and requires, once the denial is recognized or that the child is born, a support psychological.
Two observations are opposed to describe this disorder: is it a disorder purely psychological, which takes its source in the unconscious, where the woman is unable to imagine mother? Or is it a cause of sociocultural, where lack of education, women cannot spontaneously recognize the signs of pregnancy?
The question of environment also: most of the time, he didn’t realize nothing. Some doctors believe that the strength of the denial is such that it leads to family and friends with her. Women can be so convincing in her role that no one would suspect a pregnancy. Other doctors directly accuse the companions, who don’t know enough and not attentive enough to the physical and psychological of their partner changes.
