Research: One in Five Brazilians Abandoned in Pregnancy

Associated with family unity and happy parents, pregnancy also affects the relationship between future parents with serious consequences. A survey by Trocando Fraldas reveals the general dimension of the problem in Brazil and, in particular, paternal abandonment. As a topic that is rarely addressed and discussed, the subject directly and indirectly affects more than 60% of the population.

Main Reasons for Concussions and Paternal Abandonment

Among the 1038 women interviewed, 4% indicated having experienced some kind of relationship disturbance with the father during pregnancy. Not all disagreements are attributed to the pregnancy itself but are related to it. 32% are connected to behavioral changes, whether of the pregnant woman or the partner. In this context, the lack of maturity of parents is cited by 26% as another main reason. In 11% of cases the baby is the cause of the shock and for 9% of parents there is a doubt about the baby’s paternity.

 

In some cases there is already a predisposition for the occurrence of concussions. Almost a quarter of relationships that have been damaged during pregnancy have gone through serious past difficulties and pregnancy was also considered an attempt to save the relationship. In half of these relationships, the father even leaves the mother while pregnant.

 

This number is slightly higher than the 45% of pregnant women who are left at least temporarily after the occurrence of the shock, that is, 20% of the female population in total are even abandoned. While 39% of parents return to the woman before the baby is born, 36% do not assume paternity, even after birth. The rest take on their child after delivery.

Abortion Requests and Considerations

In situations of tension and extreme thoughts, they consider the idea and need for an abortion of the baby that in many cases appears to be the root of the problem. Consequently, 36% of men ask their partner to remove the fetus. In almost half of these cases, the pregnant woman herself considers abortion in parallel. In addition, there are still another 17% of abandoned women who consider abortion regardless of the father. There are no data on the actual performance of abortions as a result of parental abandonment. The reasons for evaluating this extreme measure include family, financial and psychological pressures, among others.

Consequences of Abandonment

It is not difficult to find women warriors battling, educating and raising their children alone. More than 20 million Brazilians raise their children without their father, according to a study by the Instituto Data Popular. The vast majority of Brazilian women are not only aware of this reality, but even recognize parental abandonment as one of the origins of the problem. 57% of women know the abandonment of friends and relatives, in addition to the 7% who were abandoned without other incidents around. For 88% of the interviewees, the problem is related to the lack of maturity and character of the father.

Parental abandonment is a growing international problem. According to statistics carried out in the United States, around 24 million children have been abandoned by their parents, with 1 in 3 being born. In Brazil, according to the Association of Registrars of Natural Persons (Arpen-SP), of every 20 children born in the State of São Paulo, one does not even receive the paternal name in the registry. As a complement to the research carried out in the USA, it was revealed that most social problems are related to father abandonment and the absence of a male figure in the child’s life. This increases the chances in 4 times of the children to present aggressive behavior during the life for example.

In Brazil, a survey conducted by Datafolha shows that 70% of young offenders admitted to Fundação Casa (formerly FEBEM), were not related to their father figure. These numbers prove that children who grow up with the physical absence of a father, have damage to their psychological construction and are more likely to enter the world of marginality, suffer from emotional problems, become drug and alcohol users and drop out of school early. .

The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
