La parentalité dans un couple lesbien : enjeux et questionnements

Abstract : In the framework of a clinical study on the psychic processes affecting partners in lesbian couples, who seek access to parenthood, this article analyzes the testimony of female couples preparing for Artificial Insemination with Donor (AID) and takes account of their personal and family history, as well as the dynamics of the couple itself. The methodology used and the data found are presented. The approach combines a longitudinal and psychodynamic study (illustrated with selected case studies) and a textual analysis (with the ALCESTE software) of clinical interviews of both partners of 32 lesbian couples, who sought to become parents through the use of AID. The combination of results from both analyses leads to a discussion of three factors affecting access to homoparenthood and the construction of a parental project for lesbian couples: i.e., the place given to the anonymous donor, the impact of the medical act of AID and the process of assigning the status of social mother and biological mother within the lesbian couple.
