With the increasing demand for midwives, activists are lobbying to loosen restrictions that deny legal access to homebirth options. In "Pushing for Midwives," Christa Craven presents a nuanced history of womenOCOs reproductive rights activism in the U.S. She also provides an examination of contemporary organizing strategies for reproductive rights in an era increasingly driven by OC consumer rights.OCO

a

An historical and ethnographic case study of grassroots organizing, "Pushing for Midwives" is an in-depth look at the strategies, successes, and challenges facing midwifery activists in Virginia. Craven examines how decades-old race and class prejudices against midwives continue to impact opposition toOCoas well as divisions withinOCowomenOCOs contemporary legislative efforts for midwives. By placing the midwifery struggle within a broader reproductive rights context, "Pushing for Midwives" encourages activists to reconsider how certain political strategies have the potential to divide women. This reflection is crucial in the wake of neoliberal political-economic shifts that have prioritized the rights of consumers over those of citizensOCoparticularly if activists hope to maintain their commitment to expanding reproductive rights for all women.

This set of four spiral-bound manuals is designed to help countries implement standards for midwifery practice aimed at the reduction of maternal mortality. The standards, which cover the management of selected obstetric complications and emergencies, were developed specifically for use in South-East Asian countries, where rates of maternal mortality and morbidity remain unacceptably high. The 27 standards were finalized following extensive field testing, which demonstrated positive effects on the quality of midwifery services, client satisfaction and the competence and self-confidence of midwifery personnel.

This book highlights the reality of malnutrition among school-age children in India and relates it with dietary adequacy, diversity and choice. Using empirical data from field research conducted in Karnataka, India, it documents the nutritional status of school-going children, and examines the socio-economic determinants. It provides insights into changing dietary patterns by analysing case studies from households and schools; and documents the impact of changing dietary choices on the daily nutritional intake of young children. As the issue of nutrition for school-age children is one that is largely neglected in the literature, the book fills an important gap. The book also investigates the policy framework for addressing the nutritional needs of school-going children, and assesses the available government-sponsored interventions in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness, measured by their impact on the nutritional indices of the target group. It offers concrete recommendations for changing the nutritional intake of school-going children. Navigating through the socio-cultural causes for changing food choice and their impact on children's nutritional outcomes, this book shows a viable path to addressing malnutrition, taking into account both macro-level policy constraints and the micro-level perspectives of families, schools and communities.

R2,899 Discovery Miles 28 990 Out of stock

Originally published 1995 The Making of Man-Midwifery looks at how the eighteenth century witnessed a revolution in childbirth practices. By the last quarter of the century increasing numbers of babies were being delivered by men - a dramatic shift from the women-only ritual that had been standard throughout Western history. This authoritative and challenging work explains this transformation in medical practice and remarkable shift in gender relations. By tracing the actual development and transmission of the new midwifery skills through the period, the book addresses both technological and feminist arguments of the period. The study is distinctive in treating childbirth as both a bodily and a social event and in explaining how the two were intimately connected. Practical obstetrics is shown to have been shaped by the social relations surrounding deliveries, and specific techniques were associated with distinctive places and political allegiances. The books studies how increasing numbers emergent male-midwives had overtaken women in the skill of delivering children and how as such expectant mothers chose to use these male-midwives, thus heralding the growth of male-midwives in the period.
