|Abstrakt EN:||In my paper I discuss maternity care and women?s reproductive health in the Czech Republic. Women s reproductive health, gender and reproductive issues gained substantial significance during political and economic transformations in many countries in Central and Eastern Europe after the fall of communist regimes, and became central in the reconceptualisations of the social order [Rivkin-Fish 2005]. Within this context, the case of the Czech Republic is somehow specific as gender issues and related reproductive issues, especially related to birth care, emerged relatively late at the end of the 1990s [Hašková 2001].|
