Take Charge of Your Physical and Emotional Wellbeing

Women’s Health has become a hot topic in 21st century culture. When you hear that term you probably think first of the kind of healthcare you would receive at a women’s clinic or your OB-Gyn physician’s office. Unfortunately the controversies over such things as contraception, abortion, and insurance coverage have obscured what women’s health is really all about.

A healthy woman is so much more than her reproductive organs!

Dr Carol’s Guide to Women’s Health will help women feel as though they are talking to a trusted friend, who is also an OB-Gyn physician. This guide offers medical science, the author’s practical experience, and a faith perspective to the spectrum of physical and mental health issues women face throughout the various stages of their lives.

Topics include:

  • Hormones, infertility, and pregnancy
  • Women’s mental health (such as depression, anxiety, and stress)
  • Diseases that especially affect women
  • Lifestyle and disease prevention
  • Interacting with doctors and today’s healthcare system
  • Information for moms to teach adolescent girls
  • Much more!
