dc.description.abstractThe infant mortality rate in the African American cultural group is higher than that of other cultural groups. One possible cause of higher infant mortality rate could be decreased use of perinatal services. Several researchers have suggested that communication problems between white, non-Hispanic providers and African American mothers could cause decreased use of these services. The purpose of this study was to describe low income African American mothers' perceptions of communication with their white, non-Hispanic care providers during perinatal care. Ethnographic intervews were conducted with four mothers to understand the emic perspective of African American mothers. Eight domains of meaning and one cultural theme emerged from data analysis. Examples of domains included ways of making sure and ways of talking to me. The cultural theme was "watching over me" while they were pregnant. Recommendations for health care providers and future research are discussed.en_US
