Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Obstetricians/gynecologists in private practice, Newman and Stevens have collaborated with five other physician specialists to produce this book on women's health. Written in a clear and conversational style, it explains how women can maintain good physical and mental health through life. The first part, which focuses on gynecological health from adolescence to menopause, treats topics like dating, marriage, motherhood, weight control, sexually transmitted diseases (STD), cancer prevention, menopause, and incontinence, with a balanced emphasis on clinical and psychological issues. Part 2, on obstetrics, guides women from the pre-pregnancy test through the three trimesters to labor and delivery. Additional resources are listed after each chapter, with recommended books, organizations, and Internet sites all included. Aiming to better educate women and give them the confidence to manage changes and stresses, this guide is a useful supplement to such women's health classics as Our Bodies, Ourselves. For larger public libraries and hospital patient education collections.Lily Liu, Arkansas Children's Hosp. Lib., Little Rock
