The title of this book is a response to the 1000’s of women who have contacted me over the years who feel that their essential womanhood will be profoundly affected when they lose their womb.
It is a full and frank account of the range of possible emotional impacts that a hysterectomy can have. It covers the emotional upset that can be caused by our hormones as well as the psychological ones of anxiety, stress, anger, grief, guilt and depression; it talks about the possible effect on relationships and our sexuality and it is all done with the sensitivity and understanding by someone who has ‘been there’, and who has emerged happy and healthy at the end of it.
Written as an informative guide to what you may experience, it is also interspersed my own experiences and story, which I use to illustrate the emotions and situations I am talking about.
It’s clear, easy style of writing appeals to every woman who is about to embark on a hysterectomy journey.
