Thai <i>in Vitro</i> : Gender, Culture and Assisted Reproduction Hardback
Part of the Fertility, Reproduction and Sexuality: Social and Cultural Perspectives series
In Thailand, infertility remains a source of stigma for those couples that combine a range of religious, traditional and high-tech interventions in their quest for a child.
This book explores this experience of infertility and the pursuit and use of assisted reproductive technologies by Thai couples.
Though using assisted reproductive technologies is becoming more acceptable in Thai society, access to and choices about such technologies are mediated by differences in class position.
These stories of women and men in private and public infertility clinics reveal how local social and moral sensitivities influence the practices and meanings of treatment.
