Course Description:

Pregnancy and childbirth are human universals, but the way women experience this life-altering time is shaped in large part by their culture. This class will explore the similarities and differences in the way pregnancy and birth are experienced in the United States and cross-culturally using a critical anthropological perspective. We will look at the medicalization of childbirth and alternatives to the medical model, as well as the ways culture is reified through the birth process. This class is suited to honors students, students of anthropology, women’s and gender studies, sociology, psychology, social work, nursing, pre-med, public health, and anyone interested in learning more about one of the great liminal periods in women’s lives.
