Resumo: Objective: to assess the evidence on scientific knowledge related to breastfeeding adolescents and the need for nursing care. Method: systematic review seeking the answer to the question: What are the priority learning needs for postpartum nursing care provided to adolescent mothers? A search was conducted on articles available in Portuguese and English, published between 2007 and 2013 and indexed in LILACS, MEDLINE, PubMed, and SciELO databases. Results: the sample consisted of ten articles addressing different needs of adult mothers, related to the new skills and the information necessary to manage postpartum issues regarding self-care and newborn care. Conclusions: the needs were not systematically identified, constituting a multicausal phenomenon arising from a multiplicity of factors from different dimensions that interact with each other, making it difficult to associate only one dimension.

Resumo: Objective: This study investigated the association between maternal depression and maternal–fetal attachment (MFA) and whether contextual variables such as social support and fathers’ presence moderated this association. Background: Adolescent pregnancy is associated with multiple risk factors that may compromise the relationship between mothers and their infants. However, this relationship starts during pregnancy, being affected by aspects such as social support and maternal depression. Method: Forty-nine adolescent mothers (Mage = 16.49 years; SD = 1.58) participated in the first wave of a longitudinal study which investigated social factors associated with parenting characteristics of Brazilian adolescent mothers; 65.3% reported they were cohabiting (married or living together) with the infant’s father. Results: Hierarchical regression analysis revealed that higher levels of social support were associated with greater MFA. Marital status was not significant. The association between maternal depression and MFA was significant for those participants who reported high levels of social support, but not for those participants who reported low levels of social support. Conclusion: Social support emerged as a key variable moderating the association between maternal depression and MFA. Contrary to expectations, maternal depression did not have a negative association with MFA, and further studies are needed to understand how social support promotes MFA, in the presence of other vulnerabilities, such as maternal depression.

Resumo: Neste texto, pretendo problematizar as controvérsias públicas em torno do acesso aos dispositivos de procriação medicamente assistida por parte de grupos em situação de vulnerabilidade, como os doentes crônicos (soropositivos, diabéticos e pacientes oncológicos). Entre a liberdade e a autonomia, na construção dos percursos de vida, e a regulação restritiva do acesso aos tratamentos de fertilidade, os indivíduos são convocados a assumir uma postura de responsabilidade em termos de decisão sobre seus projetos de fecundidade, ao mesmo tempo que se acentuam as desigualdades sociais, decorrentes de um recuo das funções do Estado-Providência face à crise económica e financeira generalizada.
