Abstract :
[en] The arrival of a child is often a difficult period for the couple and marks a temporary drop in the level of conjugal and sexual satisfaction. It is indeed a period of transition that requires profound readjustments. The objective of this presentation is to highlight factors (individual, interpersonal, and contextual) that moderate conjugal satisfaction during the transition to parenthood. We will present the results from two studies: (i) a quantitative study involving 534 participants and (ii) a mixed method study combining interviews and questionnaires and involving five couples. We focused on couples' experiences, conjugal and sexual satisfaction, and relational dynamics. Three key moments in the process have been analyzed: pregnancy, childbirth, and the first months of the baby's arrival. The results suggest a link between high levels of conjugal satisfaction and positive relational dynamics within the couple, good conflict management, listening to and satisfaction of personal and conjugal needs, reliance on external resources, etc. We will discuss the clinical implications of these findings, and notably possibilities for specific support for couples during that particular moment of family life.
