Summary
Reproducing Race, an ethnography of pregnancy and birth at a large New York City public hospital. explores the role of race in the medical setting. Khira M. Bridges investiages how race- commonly seen as biological in the medical world- is socially constructed among women dependent on the public healthcare system for prenatal care and childbirth, and demonstrates how the "medicalization" of social problems reproduces racial stereotypes and governs the bodies of poor women of color
