Master Thesis

Parentalité et accompagnement des bénéficiaires du don de gamètes

Abstract : Practising the gamete donations has been overly questioned and has aroused anxiety among public opinion. Several interviews with children born thanks to gamete donations have divided the same public opinion. But what about the parents who chose gamete donations? What do they think and how do they feel? Our following research is aiming to name the medical cares needed and the obstacles to be overcome by these parents, We have interviewed seven couples, six of them have been given sperm, one oocytes. Their children are between eight months and seven years old. We have discussed with them their experiences and needs during their M.A.P. (Medical Assistance to Procreation), their pregnancies, their childbirths, the first days and years of their children’s lives. We have found that their experiences as parents are different from one couple to another. What they globally have in common is their wish to be as close as possible to what is natural after so much medical assistance. The medical cares that can be given during such a « precious » pregnancy are all the more important. So are the recurrent questions such as: how and when can these parents tell their children how they were born? At every stage, the medical staff’s support and knowledge are important to help these couples and their children whose births’ origins remain the love of two people.
