[The spatial dimensions of family relations in migration: the stakes around pregnancy in migration]

Abstract : This article focuses on a synthesis analysis of observations and interviews conducted in the framework of several research fields. It provides an in-depth reflection on perinatal health inequalities, particularly in regard to access to healthcare for newly-arrived immigrants. These projects have contributed to structuring a reflection on pregnancy. In this article, we propose to address the spatial dimensions identified in the relational dynamics, and in particular family dynamics, for migrant women who have recently arrived in France with a pregnancy. We show that the challenges for these women involve trajectories that are sometimes distant and sometimes closer to their more or less close family. These logics require learning to manage distance, especially for the father, and to take into consideration social and institutional obstacles that have a significant and lasting impact on marital life. Finally, these dynamics also highlight the fact that they may be guided by affinity relationships decided by women.
