Résumé (français)  :

L’institutionnalisation de la profession de sage-femme mexicaine a une longue histoire. Bien que les recommandations mondiales s’éloignent de la formation des sages-femmes traditionnelles, les formations continuent. Sur la base de travaux de terrain dans l’État du Chiapas, je soutiens que, si les formations en cours proposées aux sages-femmes traditionnelles au Mexique visent à leur enseigner les meilleures pratiques, elles limitent également leur autonomie et permettent de maîtriser les comportements de reproduction des femmes pauvres. Je montre comment les sages-femmes et le personnel médical mobilisent les discours sur les risques pour la reproduction, les droits des femmes et les droits culturels autochtones pour renforcer ou contester les mécanismes de gouvernance de la reproduction.

Abstract (English)  :

The institutionalization of Mexican midwifery has a long history. Despite global recommendations moving away from training traditional midwives, training courses still continue. Based on fieldwork in the State of Chiapas, I argue that while ongoing trainings offered to traditional midwives in Mexico aim at teaching them best practices, they also limit midwives’ autonomy and keep poor women’s reproductive behaviors under control. I demonstrate how midwives and medical personnel mobilize discourses of reproductive risk, women’s rights and indigenous cultural rights to reinforce or contest mechanisms of reproductive governance.

Sumário (português)  :

A institucionalização da obstetrícia mexicana tem uma longa história. Apesar das recomendações globais se afastarem do treinamento das parteiras tradicionais, os cursos de treinamento ainda continuam. Com base no trabalho de campo no estado de Chiapas, argumento que, embora os treinamentos contínuos oferecidos às parteiras tradicionais no México visem ensinar as melhores práticas, eles também limitam a autonomia das parteiras e mantêm o comportamento reprodutivo das mulheres pobres sob controle. Demonstro como as parteiras e a equipe médica mobilizam discursos de risco reprodutivo, direitos das mulheres e direitos culturais indígenas para reforçar ou contestar mecanismos de governança reprodutiva.
