Nowadays we find ourselves in a totally different social and economic scenario than 30 or 40 years ago, the access of women to university education, their insertion in different professional fields, and even the rhythm of life they lead makes more and more women decide to postpone their parental projects. The problem arises when they decide to address the desire to become mothers and issues related to the biological aspect appear that do not go hand in hand with the times of desire. In this perspective, what tools do women have to avoid the gap that appears between desire and biology ? Can we think of ART as a link between the desire for a child and the biological limitations of the body ? Is there a way to avoid the negative psychological emergents that arise in the face of infertility diagnoses ? In the following paper we will take the case of Dr. Helen Sharpe, a fictional character from the series "New Amsterdam", in order to address the questions raised and to think about how the ART works not only as a link between desire and biology but also as a salutogenic agent, avoiding or reducing the negative psychological emergents in the face of infertility diagnoses.
