Abstract [en]

This study makes an attempt to understand and theorize lesbian parenthood focusing on the non-birth mother. Someone who has not got much exposure in society not academia, so the study tries to analyse these women's experiences of becoming a mother and continuously living as one in the swedish society. This has been conducted through interviews with three informants, who all define themselves as women and mothers living in a same-sex relationship. The thesis explores these women's experiences through two perspectives,  intersectionality and social constructivism, and being analysed by the concept comprehensible parenthood.

The study has shown through the experiences of the informants that they face other struggles as parents than those following a normative parenthood. Furthermore, the analytical tool intersectionality has shown that the concept parenthood could be seen as a spectrum, which depicts a diversity among the informants in this study and other parents in the swedish society.
