Chapter 6 was concerned with the different aspects of confinement, as represented by the measures used, and their interpretation. Chapter 7 dealt with the negative aspects of the personal history and of the pregnancy, as revealed in the interviews, and with the patterns of interrelations between these aspects. In these two chapters, two types of data were studied separately, those concerned with confinement and with negativity, respectively. The present chapter attempts to establish the relation between these two sets of data.
