In this new book, Dawn Hillier compares the experiences of mothers and midwives in America and England with those in Africa and Malaysia. Through vivid descriptions of actual births and careful examination of the local, national and international contexts in which they take place, she explores the roles of culture, policy and the academy in the promotion of political ideals about how human beings should come into this world. Childbirth in the Global Village will resonate with the experiences of midwives everywhere and makes a strong case for redesigning the midwifery curriculum to reflect the interconnectedness of childbirth, midwifery education and practice around the globe.
