  • Anticipating Fatherhood: “She is the One who is Pregnant”

    • Authors: Florencia Herrera, Yanko Pavicevic
      Pages: 107 - 133
      Abstract: This article seeks to understand how men that are going to become fathers for the first time in Chile, anticipate fatherhood. To achieve this purpose, 14 men that were close to having their first child were interviewed. Three topics are studied in depth: 1. The expectations surrounding fatherhood, 2. The masculine experiences of pregnancy and 3. The experiences surrounding antenatal health care. The men want to be involved and caring fathers, but still consider that their primary role is to provide. They are very conscious of the protagonism that pregnancy gives to their couples and see themselves as companions in the process. They feel their couples have a physical and direct relationship with their future child, while they can only have an indirect experience mediated by the female body and technology. They value the moments in which they have been able to ‘feel’ the baby (listen to its heartbeats, see it in ultrasounds, feel its movements). They believe it is natural that their couples are the center of attention during prenatal checkups, but some feel patronized by the healthcare professionals. The men perceive the process of waiting for the baby as profoundly differentiated by gender.

  • Some Methodological Reflections in Addressing Reproductive Experiences of
           Men through Public Policies

    • Authors: Juan Guillermo Figueroa Perea
      Pages: 134 - 156
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyze the way in which the male population has been considered in public health policies and programs related to reproductive behavior of the population in Mexico. It assumes a context in which women have been identified as the protagonists and reference subjects on whom interventions are built in the field of reproductive behavior. The text includes a review of some programs and public policies in Mexico, then present some methodological proposal considering gender as a relational concept. The interest is epistemological, so there is an interest in reflecting on assumptions behind the logic of government interventions in the field of reproduction and then building on some methodological proposals that allow a relational interpretation of women and men as gender subjects, who potentially can reproduce themselves within heterosexual or homosexual couples.

  • Masculinities and Fatherhood in the Adoption. A Place to Build

    • Authors: Irene Salvo
      Pages: 157 - 181
      Abstract: In the field of adoption, international and Latin American scientific production has largely addressed the experiences of adoptive mothers, the adoptive family understood as a unit that includes either both members of the couple, or considering more marginally, to mothers of origin and finally, lesbian mothers, appreciating a strong "feminization" of the study of this topic. Research has not paid more attention to parents of origin and the various configurations in adoptive fatherhood. As a result, it has invisibilized the singularity, specificity and heterogeneity of meanings, practices and experiences about birth fathers and adoptive fathers and are still a number of stereotypes and prejudices that limit a more active inclusion of them in the care tasks. Faced with the lack of knowledge and under the premise that studying men and parents in adoption represents a contribution to advance policies and practices of greater responsibility and gender equality, this paper identifies, classifies and analyzes of the findings of studies on masculinity, paternity and adoption, making special emphasis on some results and topics on this phenomenon, in order to visualize some current challenges and prospects for research and psychosocial intervention.

  • Parental Arrangements of Gay Men in Mexico City: Between a Denied
           Paternity and an Inadvertent Care Transformation

    • Authors: Oscar Emilio Laguna-Maqueda
      Pages: 182 - 204
      Abstract: Various phenomena, result of feminist’s struggles and gay and lesbian liberation movements, are currently observable. One of them, are gay parental arrangements, which by their very existence pose a question to the supposed universality of the characteristics of the “family”.Homosexual men when having children either by biological, legal or social ways, do not want to reconfigure the idea of family or develop practices of innovative care, because what they really want is to create a family similar to the one in which they lived. However, when accessing a field, which has excluded them and invisible them has implications for upsetting heteronormativity´s guidelines. Moreover, their strategies to combat homophobia and reduce risks to their children impact on care practices, making inadvertent changes on this gendered practice.
