    Women's Gynecologic Health, Second EditionHave you ever wanted to read Women's Gynecologic Health, Second Edition by Kerri Durnell Schuiling and Frances E. Likis on your Kindle? Now you can! Our American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) Book of the Year Award winner was just released as a Kindle edition.

    Women’s Gynecologic Health, Second Edition is a comprehensive text that equips students and practicing clinicians with a strong foundation in women’s gynecologic health, including health promotion, maintenance, and treatment. Based on the most recent research, the authors provide authoritative content written from a feminist perspective to convey a holistic approach to care.

    "...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)

    Completely updated and revised, this second edition includes four new chapters on diagnosis of pregnancy at the gynecologic visit, women’s health after bariatric surgery, sexual assault, and urinary tract infections. In addition, the chapter on gynecologic health care for sexual and gender minorities has been expanded to include care not only for lesbians, but also for bisexual women and transgender individuals.
