Abstract in another language

This book recounts the stories of 30 expectant mothers living with HIV in Lesotho, and how they made decisions during an uncertain time. Social concerns - such as poverty, familial disruption, limited opportunities, and early infant care - are present during a time "in between life and death." Medical and non-medical solutions are found to make this life-changing event a success. Familial care, medical counseling, and ritual practices were combined, yet there were often conflicting demands. In between Life and Death is about the navigation of such conflicts.
