African American Midwifery in the South by Gertrude Jacinta Fraser

Book Description

Starting at the turn of the 20th century most African-American midwives in the South were gradually excluded from reproductive health care. Here Gertrude Fraser shows how physicians, public health personnel and state legislators mounted a campaign ostensibly to improve maternal and infant health, especially in rural areas. They brought traditional midwives under the control of a supervisory body, and eventually eliminated them. The author explores a number of ideas about race, gender the relationship of medicine to society and the status of the South in the national political and social economies.
