Book Description

In Contraception and Abortion from the Ancient World to the Renaissance, John Riddle showed, through extraordinary scholarly sleuthing, that women from ancient Egyptian times to the fifteenth century had relied on an extensive pharmacopoeia of herbal abortifacients and contraceptives to regulate fertility. In Eve's Herbs, Riddle explores a new question: If women once had access to effective means of birth control, why was this knowledge lost to them in modern times? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars It's good, but not...
If you are looking for do-it-yourself abortion information like I was, this is not a good book for that. It is a history book. It's good, but not an abortionary (abortion dictionary).

5-0 out of 5 stars A work of history which also excels as an herbal
As a person who enjoys the study of social history (how people lived) and herbal medicine, this book exceeded my expectations on both counts.

Riddle is an historian, so the scholarship in the book is historical scholarship. He moves deftly between conflicting theories of demographics and actual family sizes, at home with his contemporaries and able to argue his somewhat novel opinion on a level playing field. Not surprisingly, historians tend to go along with modern medical thought that there were no effective systems of personal or professional health care prior to our own allopathic tradition in the past few centuries. Herbalists, homeopaths and the like are still fighting for legitimacy against exactly this mindset.

What surprised and delighted me was the thoroughness of Riddle's information on the herbs in question. It must be noted that he does NOT provide recipes for readers to use at home. He isn't playing (herbal) doctor. Regardless, a person with some experience in herbalism or access to alternate texts can easily take the list of herbs from this book and find appropriate dosage and other how to information from that other source--including the important caveat that herbs are not always safe and shouldn't be taken without professional advice or lots of research. Riddle's emphasis is on pointing out which plants have been indicated, by whom in the ancient world, and what science has (or has not) done to test for actual efficacy.

One interesting side note for readers who allow for the possible effectiveness of today's most revolutionary complementary medicine modalities is Riddle's reporting of the fact that, historically, chants (magic) were often listed together with the herbs (medicine) in any given herbal recipe. Riddle is careful and respectful of the potential for narrow-mindedness when he admits that, to our Western minds, there can be no believing in the usefulness of the magic side of the equation, but he makes no disparaging remarks and he allows for future scientific work to prove said "magic" effective. Of course, to a modern practitioner of Reiki or any other mental/spiritual healing system, it is certainly possible to suppose the intent of the healer and/or patient was a necessary or beneficent part of the ancient cures.

I expected to enjoy this book's subject matter, but I was actually delighted by how well Mr. Riddle covered both aspects of the topic, and even more so by the easy readability of his style. Any person who enjoys reading well-written history for pleasure will find this a work worth spending some time with.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome
The best book out there thus far on herbal contraception and abortion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brave scholarship upon the "secret knowledge" of women.
An outstanding work of scholarship. Riddle has gathered buried historical evidence of reproductive control through the ages. A must read for those who feel that we live in the most "enlightened" age, in regards to reproduction. Riddle will prove you wrong. Women have been in control of their reproduction for centuries. Readily available herbs have been more effective than "modern science" throughout society. ... Read more

Book Description

Without a doubt, the rapid growth and variety of assisted reproduction techniques (ART) has been a major factor in the increasing number of twins, and particularly, of higher-multiple births throughout the developed world. Almost one of every two twin pairs and the vast majority of higher-order multiples now result from the implementation of (ART). These iatrogenic multiple pregnancies threaten the health of mothers and their families and need to be understood by clinicians. Iatrogenic Multiple Pregnancy: Clinical Implications covers the full range of contemporary issues involved in iatrogenic multiple pregnancy. The text spans the spectrum from the highly pragmatic, as illustrated by how to avoid multiple gestation in ovulation induction, to the more esoteric and less well defined, as illustrated by the economic ramifications. The body of knowledge in this field is growing rapidly but has rarely been reviewed as a whole. This book brings together leading experts from all over the world to provide a critical and comprehensive overview of all aspects of the subject that are likely to be of significance to physicians. The text contains a wealth of information for professionals advising or caring for couples who are undergoing treatment that could result in a multiple pregnancy, as well as for those actually experiencing one or coping with their immediate family. Iatrogenic Multiple Pregnancy: Clinical Implications serves as a rich and invaluable resource that will enable you to provide the knowledgeable support these families need. ... Read more

Book Description

What do you get when a Seinfeld writer marries an OB/GYN? A doctor with a funny delivery. Actually, lots of funny deliveries. Marc Jaffe's job was coming up with hysterical stories for Seinfeld, but nothing was funnier than the stories his gynecologist wife would tell. So, he decided to write this laugh-a-page book about life married to an Ob/gyn. It includes all the crazy stories his wife tells about: * Flying Placentas * Sex toy parties * Immaculate conceptions * Intimate tattoos * Ridiculous 4:00 am phone calls...and more comical incidents of gynecologic and obstetric intrigue. While sleeping with your gynecologist would be wrong, reading Sleeping With Your Gynecologist is very right. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A hilarious book that was hard to put down
A must read for any male or female who wants to know what other women go through behing those secret doors! Many times I was laughing so hard tears rolled down my face. Some of the gynocological secrets (bacon) were too funny. I have reccomended this book to all my (mostly female) friends.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Doctor is never home
Recently I had the unique opportunity of not only reading "Sleeping with my Gynecologist" but also meeting the author. I found the book to be a great "coffee table read". It was quite a easy read with real down to earth humour. As my wife and I have gone through child birth 3 times (not including our own), I was easily able to relate to the stories told in the book. For everybody who has been involved with pregnancy/childbirth I highly recommend this unique perspective on the most trying times of your life. It is tremendously funny and will allow you to view pregnancy from a totally different perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and laughed more than I can remember!

2-0 out of 5 stars Gotta disagree with the rave reviews
I was really, really disappointed in this book, especially after reading the raves from both celebrities and other readers. I thought, first of all, there were only about 20 pages of funny stories, and the rest was observational humor about how long we all get kept waiting at the doctor's office, etc. Maybe because Jaffe is used to writing for comedians/shows, his stuff would work really well if delivered in a droll voice, but when you write a book, you really need to have something to say that is fresh and interesting. I just didn't find that here.

The stories were amusing, but I've read one or two of them before, actually (in books by ER doctors). And even the stories didn't have me laughing out loud, as they did the other readers. I LOVE this kind of humor; I've got a huge collection of humor AND true-life medical books. But this left me wishing I'd browsed through it in a bookstore. I definitely wouldn't have spent the money on it.

If you like books by stand-up comedians (SeinLanguage, Ellen deGeneres, Paul Reiser, etc), then this is for you. But even just for light reading, it wasn't for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm ordering copies for my friends so they won't take mine!
How many times do you read something that actually makes you laugh out loud? I found myself reading passage after passage to my husband, who was initially squeamish about the subject matter. He asked me if he could read it when I was done! If you knew him, you'd know that this is a very special book!

5-0 out of 5 stars I'll prescribe it for my patients
I've often wondered if our patients have any clue what it's like being an OB/GYN. If they don't then this very funny book will give them some insight into the craziness. It had my husband and I in tears, we were laughing so hard. The middle of the night phone calls were my favorite. That could be a book in itself. All OB/GYNs should get this book and when you're done laughing, put it in your waiting room, or get one for each exam room, then your patients won't mind when you are running behind. ... Read more

Book Description

The definitive reference work on prenatal diagnosis, Genetic Disorders and the Fetus is now available in a completely revised and updated fifth edition reflecting the most current advances in research, technology, and clinical care.

Written by an international team of experts, the volume provides in-depth critical analysis of the latest work in prenatal diagnosis of genetic and other disorders. Topics include: fragile X syndrome, cystic fibrosis, neural tube defects, and hemoglobinopathies; the experience and techniques of amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, ultrasound, fetal blood sampling; abortion and fetal therapy; and medicolegal and ethical issues in prenatal diagnosis. The book describes the use of combined biochemical markers to screen for neural tube and chromosomal defects, presents the latest developments relating to testing fetal cells in the mother's blood, and reviews major advances in molecular genetics that permit prenatal carrier detection and presymptomatic and predictive testing.

Much has changed since the publication of the fourth edition. The new technologies of fetal MRI, 3-D ultrasound, and real time PCR of fetal DNA in maternal circulation yield crucial information. While, integrated screening of data from the first and second trimesters coupled with ultrasound now produces a 94 percent detection rate. ... Read more
