Behind a thatched hut, a birthing woman bleeds to death only minutes from life-saving maternity care. Author Rachel Chapman begins Family Secrets with the deceptively simple question, Why don't women in Mozambique use existing prenatal and maternity services? then widens her analysis to include a whole universe of cultural, political, and economic forces.

Author Rachel Chapman begins Family Secrets with the deceptively simple question, Why don't women in Mozambique use existing prenatal and maternity services? then widens her analysis to include a whole universe of cultural, political, and economic forces. Fusing cultural anthropology with political economy, Chapman vividly demonstrates how neoliberalism and the increasing importance of the market have led to changing sexual and reproductive strategies for women. Pregnant herself during her research, Chapman interviewed 83 women during pregnancy and postpartum. She discovered that the social relations surrounding traditional Shona practices, Christian faith healing, and Western biomedical treatments are as important to women's choices as the efficacy of the therapies.

    Interesting insights in a global health initiative on pregnancy, birth, and improving maternal mortality rates in central Mozambique. Especially helpful in broadening perspectives on how Western biomedical care is perceived in rural regions of Southern African nations by those who are "supposed to" utilize the care and maternity clinics. Clearly a doctoral dissertation, and written as an ethnography by an anthropologist.
