Dr Miriam Stoppard is the best-selling author of pregnancy, childcare and women's health titles. Her books include Conception, Pregnancy and Birth, Baby and Child Health Care and Complete Baby and Child Care.From Library Journal:
This profusely illustrated book provides good, current information about the human female. Her development, anatomy, physiology, mental health, social roles, and sexuality are examined by a group of experts led by contributing editor Stoppard. Diet, exercise, healthcare, contraception, pregnancy, and infertility are also covered. Unfortunately, the information presented here is less comprehensive and less objective than that in The New Our Bodies Ourselves (LJ 2/1/93). There is, for example, little discussion of the controversy associated with hormone replacement therapy. This book also lacks the bibliography and referral sources that appear in the other volume, but the beautiful color photographs, charts, and graphs make the anatomical and physiological concepts and medical procedures very easy to understand. The insets comparing women with men and animals and the historical notes provide interesting sidelights, too. Highly recommended for all collections as a supplement to The New Our Bodies Ourselves.
