The global campaign to decrease maternal mortality has actually created barriers to reducing maternal mortality, or pregnancy-related deaths, argues Berry, and threatens to make some of the very communities that it is designed to help even more vulnerable. Taking her case studies from Guatemala, she discusses the specter of death; life, birth, and death in the village; an interaction at the emergency room; the spin of global safe motherhood and making local pregnancy safer and what it covers up; the Indio Bruto and modern Guatemalan healthcare; everyday violence from a Kaqchikel village to the nation and back; praying for a good outcome and staying at home during obstetric problems; and putting the maternal back in maternal mortality.
