3. Résumé


« The objective was to elicit the mental representations about the sex of the future child of 89 nulliparous pregnant women who declared having no sex preference, using the Kelly’s Repertory Grid. Analyses showed that 67% of these women had no explicit and clear representation about the sex of their child. These data suggest that these women seemed really to have no sex preference. » (p. 464)
