I Knew a Woman: Four Women Patients and Their Female Caregiver by Cortney Davis

I cannot ignore the reality of the body, its glorious beginnings and its subtle endings, writes Cortney Davis in this intimate and startlingly original account of her work at a womens clinic. A poet and nurse-practitioner with twenty five years experience, Davis reveals the beauty of the bodys workings by unfolding the lives of four patients who struggle with its natural cycles and unexpected surprises: pregnancy and childbirth, illness and recovery, sexual dysfunction and sexual joy. An abundance of solid medical information imbues every graceful line. Daviss eternal question to herself is: How do you help someone to not merely survive but flourish? In this compassionate and expansive book, she provides a template. I Knew a Woman will alter your perception of the humanity of medicine and the ordinary miracle of our physical selves. From the Hardcover edition.
