Updated and Revised: Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

Christine Northrup, MD, just released the newest version, the latest of four, of Women’s Body, Women’s Wisdom on June 1st, 2010. The release coincides with her new PBS special “Christine Northrup; Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom” (check your local PBS listing here).

I bought the original book in 1994 and read it as my own personal bible. The first copy got me through fertility, pregnancy and postpartum issues. This latest copy will see me through the next stage in my life, menopause, with the latest information, material and studies.

I appreciate Christiane Northrup’s straight forward explanations about medical issues and how she connects our physical self with the mind and our emotional self. Dr. Northrup covers everything you want to know in this 931 reference page book. She gives us permission to feel the way we do and covers topics that we may be curious about and/or may not feel comfortable asking about.

If there is one book that every woman should own, it is this one. A perfect gift to a daughter from her mother or one that you simply give yourself. You can purchase it on Amazon.com for $13.50 (a good deal considering I paid $14.95 for the first edition back in 1994!). Christiane Northrup can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
