Reviewer: Medical Advisory Council, The British Menopause Society
‘This practical guide is a welcome addition to the range of material now available to help women understand their menopause. Kathy Abernethy is a highly qualified and experienced specialist nurse, greatly respected within the healthcare profession. She understands that menopause is an intensely personal experience and offers thoughtful advice for treatment and lifestyle options.
The book is especially helpful in providing clear definitions, answers to frequently asked questions and more than 200 anonymised quotes from patients expressing their concerns and anxieties during consultations at the author’s clinical practice. This all gels into an easily digestible format that will inform, reassure and, as the title suggests, guide women through this inevitable stage of their lives.’
