Miranda Waggoner is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Florida State University. Her research focuses on the social and cultural dimensions of medicine, science, and public health, with an emphasis on the politics of gender, reproduction, and maternal and child health. Her 2017 book, The Zero Trimester, explores why the task of perfecting pregnancies now takes up a woman's entire reproductive life, from menarche to menopause.
