Transition to parenthood involves a transformation of mental representations for mothers and fathers. During pregnancy the coparenting and triadic relational subsystem emerge. Ultrasound during pregnancy could promote paternal involvement, reassures parents and allows them to share fantasies about the baby. This study aims to explore parental and coparental identity during pregnancy and the role of baby’s image through the 4D ultrasound. Results evidence some differences between the observed couples and some indicators of affiliative, parental and coparental processes.

Keywords: Coparenting, pregnancy, ultrasound.
