"I've Got You Under My Skin": The Embodied Relationship With The Baby Within

Abstract

This paper describes a longitudinal qualitative phenomenological investigation of the subjective embodied bodily experiences of mothers-to-be in relation to their babies within. Using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), this paper draws on thirty semi-structured interviews conducted with six women during and after their pregnancies. It aims to capture the richness and complexity of the women's lived experience during the transition to motherhood, emphasising the idea of change as a process.
