Abstract: Since eating-disordered patients can show some ambivalence towards pregnancy, we wondered how they would react when an important other (relative, friend, therapist) gets pregnant. A group of 69 eating disorder patients filled out a questionnaire about their perception of the possible impact of a pregnancy in an important other or a therapist. In general, the experience was perceived as having had a positive influence on their view of womanhood and their idea to get pregnant, with a greater impact of pregnancy in therapists.
