Summary/Abstract: This paper explores complex motivational grounds of childbearing determined by the complexity of numerous psychological, social, economic and other factors. The aim is to show the evolution of reproductive intentions in the present social and economic moment, in co- dependence of the internal and external factors. The complexity of the subject entails taking into account a variety of motivational elements, directly and indirectly associated with the evolution of reproductive intentions. Prevalent social setting represents an important variable in positioning and evaluation of attitudes on childbearing. Unfavorable socio economic context in Serbia in the last twenty five years or so did not attribute to forming and promoting positive attitudes on reproduction. Economic crisis and financial deprivation reinforced the feeling of overall insecurity, having had its reflection on the emotional and social aspect of human relations.
