Abstract in English
This paper seeks to highlight transgender people's experience of pregnancy, and to provide a suggesstion for psychomotor intervention for this demographic. The study has a phenomenological qualitative design, and is based on interviews with three transgender people who have experienced pregnancy. These are analysed and a suggesstion for psychomotor intervention is made on the basis hereof.
The analysis showed that the informants had experiences of pregnancy that are unique to the individual by virtue of their gender identity, as well as experiences that are typical of pregnancy. In particular, the stress of meeting the outside world was highlighted.
In addition, findings suggest a resourceful informant group that copes with challenges in a appropriate way. Results indicate that psychomotor therapy is highly relevant for this target group, as well as transgender people in general.
Further research in this area is suggested, particularly with a view to examining the discourse surrounding transgender people and pregnancy.
