- DescriptionIn the age of abolition, British politicians, slave owners, doctors, and missionaries were promoting motherhood among women working on Caribbean plantations, as a way to sustain the labor force in the absence of new African recruits. Paugh recounts the story of a Barbadian midwife to explore how this effort was experienced by Afro-Caribbean women.
