The Journey of Becoming a Mother Among Women in Northern Thailand is the first book-length study of childbearing and motherhood in Thailand. Informed by both anthropology and women's studies, Pranee Liamputtong draws sharp distinctions between the practices of the East and those of the West. Covering virtually every aspect of childbirth and upbringing, this book also examines how women try to adapt to changes - social, economical, and political - that affect their motherhood and reproduction.This very personal and accessible book is an excellent intercultural study of women and health, useful to undergraduate as well as graduate students of Women's Studies, Public Health, and Anthropology.
