Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause provides an in-depth look at subjects such as hormone therapy and sexuality as well as proven strategies for coping with challenges like hot flashes, mood swings, and night sweats.

Ourselves and our children : a book by and for parents by Boston Women's Health Book Collective( Book )

10 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book probes the experience of parenthood, drawing heavily on anecdotal reports of parents' personal experiences and feelings interwoven with the authors' comments. Chapter 1 examines the pros and cons of having children; touches briefly on pregnancy, infertility, adoption, and stepparenthood; and looks at the issues involved in deciding whether to have more children. Chapters 2 through 5 deal with what parents' lives are like at various stages of parenthood: during their children's early years, middle years, teenage years, and years as adults. The last 4 chapters consider some special dimensions of parents' experiences and needs: (1) shared parenthood, in which two parents share the primary daily care of their children; (2) family life and the different forms that families take; (3) the social institutions and attitudes which affect parents and ways that some parents have worked for change; and (4) the kinds of help that parents need, ways they can help themselves and each other, and the various professional and lay resources to which parents can turn. A bibliography of recommended books on related topics is included. (Jmb)
