This concluding chapter revisits the social and medical trends that have intersected with recent knowledge shifts in understanding pregnancy health risk, especially the contemporary tendency in medicine and public health toward the anticipation of risk, the persistence of cultural and medical assumptions that link all reproductive outcomes to women’s individual behaviors, and the ongoing debates in reproductive politics that hinder discussions about comprehensive women’s health care. This chapter ends by considering ways to think through, with, and beyond the pre-pregnancy care model in women’s health policy.

Keywords:   medical trends, health risk, anticipation, reproductive politics, pre-pregnancy care, women’s health care, women’s health policy
