The impracticality of using health outcome Safe motherhood initiatives book leaves process indicators as the alternative in most settings, possibly supplemented by facility-based data on health outcomes. The programme provides education and relevant information on modern safe pregnancy and delivery practices for the expectant women. Although some of these latter risks are often spoken about as deriving from spiritual or supernatural causes, the case studies presented throughout the second half of the book reveal that the concept of risk in the context of pregnancy and childbirth is much more complex, involving the interplay of spiritual, physical, and economic aspects of everyday life. Based on twenty-two months of fieldwork in the Shinyanga Region of west central Tanzania, this rich and engaging ethnography of women's fertility-related experiences highlights the processes by which a set of seemingly well-intentioned international maternal health policy recommendations go awry when implemented at the local level.

The changing emphasis in the approach to Safe Motherhood is reviewed as there has been a move away from inevitable medical intervention towards social justice, human rights and respectful care.
