With increasing emphasis being placed on preventing illness or health problems, any book which explains bodily functions, how and why they may go wrong and what can be done by the person to avoid disorders occurring, is welcome. Everywoman has admirably fulfilled this function for some 2 million women worldwide, and this fourth edition is now revised to take into account recent developments in the understanding of women's sexuality and the intricacies of hormone balance.
Once again Derek Llewellyn-Jones has sought the opinions and advice of women's organisations, with the result that the book continues to reflect the needs and requests of women generally. New topics covered include Toxic Shock, Genital Herpes, Perimenstrual and Premenstrual Syndromes, 'Active Birth', Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Grief following a Baby's Death.
Additional material on Pregnancy includes ultrasound pictures of the developing fetus in the womb. Sensitively written, beautifully illustrated by Audrey Besterman, universally acclaimed, Everywoman is a MUST for every woman who wishes to fulfil her femininity.
