Multicultural Mothers Perceptions of Maternal Medical Care

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Kimberly Fleming, anthropology major, had her research project approved for funding by the Diverse Voices of Anchorage Project as a part of the Chancellors UAA as a Public Square Fund. In 2004 there were 4,838 live births in Anchorage. More births are occurring among women from ethnically diverse backgrounds. Research among mothers of various cultural backgrounds residing in Anchorage will provide a better understanding of how the pregnancy and birth expectations in their place of origin compare with the birthing care and experiences they receive in Anchorage. Kerry Feldman, Anthropology Professor, serves as her mentor. For more information contact
