Embodying Culture is an ethnographically grounded exploration of pregnancy in two different culturesùJapan and Israelùboth of which medicalize pregnancy. Tsipy Ivry focuses on "low-risk" or "normal" pregnancies, using cultural comparison to explore the complex relations among ethnic ideas about procreation, local reproductive politics, medical models of pregnancy care, and local modes of maternal agency.
