    So where is the repudiation of Freud? It appears there is more agreement with his theory than departure.

      Thank you for your comment!

      I believe the post departs from Freud in that it focuses on the woman’s experience of pregnancy as a seminal event in its own right and not secondary to the phallus.

      Freud has little to say about pregnancy from the woman’s perspective.
