Abstract: This qualitative study examines early motherhood and the changing personal, family, educational and professional life trajectories of twelve young women who had their first child before their 25th birthday. This thesis project on the experience of early motherhood is guided by a specific question: What are mothers' perceptions of the role of their maternity considered as early on their personal, educational, professional and family life trajectories? The analytical framework chosen for this thesis is that of life course theory. Thus, to better understand the participants' life course, three key moments were examined: before pregnancy, during pregnancy and at birth and after pregnancy. This distinction made it possible to see the influences that led to a change in the life trajectories of these young women. The thematic analysis of qualitative data based on the meeting of twelve young mothers in semi-structured interviews made it possible to explore, based on their perception, what characterizes their experience and how their life trajectories evolved as a result of this event. The results of this thesis show that the maternity experience of her young women influences their life trajectories, but that there are also other factors that influence the evolution of these life trajectories. The results also show that children are a driving force for change for these women.
