Free text The author, psychoanalist in an obstetrics-gynecology department of the Saint-Antoine Hospital in Paris, tells the stories of the patients she encounters and tries to counsel. All the mothers (and some couples), some quite young, and others less so, have complicated stories and often reasons for not keeping their children. In the last chapter, the author deals with ethical questions associated with the medicalisation of procreation and termination of pregnancies for medical or psychosocial reasons. The question of mourning of parents for a child dead "in utero" is also discussed.
