Based upon ethnographic fieldwork in a rural village community in Northeast Thailand, this article explores issues relating to the quality of care received in reproductive health services from the perspective of village women. Inequalities of power fundamental to gender, class, and ethnic relations are described as elements affecting the service-giving process. The subordinate position of village women is subtly reinforced in the spatial organization, style of communication, and management of the services.
