In the Sitapur district of Uttar Pradesh, an agricultural region with high rates of infant mortality, maternal health services are poor while family planning efforts are intensive. By following the daily lives of women in this setting, the author considers women's own experiences of birth and infant death, their ways of making-do, and the hierarchies they create and contend with. This book develops an approach to access to care that focuses on emotion, domestic spaces, illicit and extra-institutional biomedicine, and household and neighborly relations. It shows that, as part of the concatenation of affect and access, globalized moralities about reproduction are dependent on ambiguous ideas about caste. Through the unfolding of birth and death, a new vision of "untouchability" emerges that is integral to visions of progress.
