The rave reviews keep on coming for Women’s Gynecologic Health, Second Edition by Kerri Durnell Schuiling and Frances E. Likis, our American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) Book of the Year Award winner. According to Melicia Escobar, MSN, CNM, Adjunct Instructor and Clinical Faculty Advisor at Georgetown University,
“Schuiling and Likis have created a perfectly women-centered text that is an essential read for anyone going into the field of caring for women, certainly future midwives. This shift in approach was sorely missing from the field prior to this text. It is one of my favorites.”
Read more about why this text is so special:
“Women’s Gynecologic Health, Second Edition provides a plethora of excellent up-to-date information on many aspects of women’s health with an emphasis on a holistic approach to care. One of the many things that make this text special is that it has a feminist approach to health care. This is exemplified by the illustrations which show the woman as whole rather than just ‘body parts.’ The second edition has some wonderful revisions that include new chapters on the care of lesbian, transgender and bisexual women, care of women during the first trimester of pregnancy as well as the care of women who have had gastric bypass surgery.” – Eileen Ehudin Beard, CNM, FNP, Senior Policy Advisor, American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM)
“Love it, love it, love it.” – Jane F. Houston DNP, CNM, UF College of Nursing
