Pressured to have a child: a case of Ekebergia capensis - 655.47.07
Woman, thirty-one, crisis around pregnancy and family
She wanted to become pregnant and underwent IVF treatment unsuccessfully three times. She especially did this for her father, who expects from her to be a "normal" woman with a family. She would, however, prefer to get a good job as an economist after her studies. She is eager to learn a lot and to have a family too, but without pressure; she also could accept adopting a child. She is creative and is always interested in new experiences and challenges. Her family is very traditional and religious and has certain expectations of the children. Her sisters and brother already have children and are working in a kindergarten and at school; they completely fulfill the expectations of the family. Her mother has been a day nanny until now, looking after children in her home and proud of being at home all the time. The patient, however, felt neglected as a child, growing up between the day-care children of her mother. She would like to do something special with her life but she is afraid of becoming a complete outsider in the family. Her husband also feels the pressure from his father- in- law and so he puts much pressure on his wife to get pregnant. He cannot tolerate the idea of adoption at all. The crisis has become acute now because she does not want to have another IVF because of the painful process. She already had an ovarian torsion a few years ago after some attempts with Gestagen. Her mood is changeable, she weeps easily. She bites her nails.
