Trajectoires de femmes en sortie des addictions : quelle place pour les grossesses ?

Abstract : Pregnancies or maternities are well described as potential turning points in women’s addiction trajectories. In a research study on recovery, 116 women were questioned in a face to face biographical survey about different aspects of their lives, including whether or not all their pregnancies had resulted in live births. Among these women, 23 had never been pregnant; the others had had one or more pregnancies, half resulting in live births and the others in miscarriages or abortions. The place of their pregnancies in their addiction trajectories is contrasted according to their birth cohorts: the youngest had used drugs while in their teens, were cared for a few years later and were pregnant afterwards. For these reasons, in contrast with the women aged 45 or above at the time of the survey, their reproductive lives were disconnected from their “careers” in product abuse.
