The issues surrounding pregnancy during residency training include length of maternity leave, coverage during that leave, and relationships among resident colleagues. With more women entering medicine, the likelihood of a majority of residents in any postgraduate year being pregnant at one time has increased. This study presents an in-depth view of one such resident cohort. Conflicts occurred over the perception that pregnant residents received special treatment. The defenses mobilized by residents included projection and denial.
