Editors: Pranee Liamputtong (La Trobe Univ. Australia)
Book Description:
Subject Scope: women's studies, midwifery, anthropology, sociology, social work, nursing, and medicine

Although reproduction including infertility, abortion, childbearing and motherhood is a significant human experience, its social meaning is shaped by the culture in which birthing women live. Reproduction and its management, therefore, occur within the social and cultural context of the event. As such, reproductive beliefs and practices differ across social and cultural settings. This new book focuses on reproduction, childbearing and motherhood. In this volume, the authors show that despite the modernization of the society and advanced medical technology and knowledge in reproduction, traditions continue to exert influence on how the women and their families manage their reproduction, childbearing and motherhood in their societies.
