GILBERT, Ana Cristina Bohrer; CARDOSO, Maria Helena Cabral de Almeida  e  WUILLAUME, Susana Maciel. Women, Medicine, and technology in the discourse of medical residents in Obstetrics/Gynecology. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2006, vol.22, n.5, pp.941-950. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2006000500007.

This study focused on revealing the cultural meanings assigned to womanhood and the health-disease process in women according to the discourse of medical residents in Obstetrics/Gynecology at the Fernandes Figueira Institute, a public reference hospital specializing in maternal-child care in Rio de Janeiro. The research had two components: participatory observation in Ob-Gyn meetings and recording of oral sources. The sign-based method was used to analyze the data. The methodology included qualitative analytical coding of interviews and subsequent semiotic analysis. According to the results: (a) women are seen essentially as mothers, and their illness focuses primarily on their childbearing function; (b) technological evolution, mainly with the increased use of imaging, has reduced the importance of semiology; and (c) within the biotechnological context medicalization is part of the material and semiotic practices.
