Review:

The Journey of Becoming a Mother Among Women in Northern Thailand contributes to understanding how the global goals of lowering mother and child mortality and morbidity can be met by going beyond statistics and revealing the complexity of women's experiences. (Wilfreda Thurston, University of Calgary)

A significant contribution to the field, this book should be required reading for health practitioners and policy makers in Thailand and elsewhere. (Miriam Grant, University of Calgary)
