Abstract
Pregnancy is defined as a specific crisis stage of development of a woman’s personality. We consider the specifics of the personality’s structure, gender identity, object relations and self-concept in this regard. The process of personality formation in a woman during pregnancy is marked by integrity and connected to the processes of regression, transformation, integration, and restructuring of intrapersonal formations. During pregnancy Id’s libidinal and aggressive tendencies intensify, Ego’s structure expands and enriches itself by assimilating the child as an Ego-ideal, Super-Ego lessens its pressure. Gender identity is restructured as a result of gender ideal merging with the gender stereotype.

Keywords: pregnancy, psychosexual development, crisis, object relations, identity, intrapsychic structure, gender identity, sense of self

Column: Psychoanalytical studies
