"Given the patterns of herb purchasing and use, the single most important herbal demographic is women," said ABC Board of Trustees President Steven Foster. "Dr. Romm's Botanical Medicine for Women's Health bridges the gap between an advocacy approach and an authoritative treatment of the subject [of women's health]. She combines the empirical traditional observations of the botanical practitioner and herbalist with the detailed scientific nuance of a medical doctor," he said. "The wisdom, limitations, and possibilities of divergent worlds usually separated by a gulf are bridged by her grasp of both worlds. Under Aviva Romm's guidance, the result is an authoritative-yet-accessible collaborative effort with other knowledgeable, respected experts, which seamlessly blends a rare and welcome balance of tradition and science."
Dr. Romm is a recognized expert in women's health, women's and pediatric botanical medicine, and midwifery(2). She practiced as an herbalist and homebirth midwife and for over 20 years before becoming a physician, and was one of the first certified professional midwives (CPM) in the United States(2). Other books written by Dr. Romm include The Natural Pregnancy Book (10 Speed Press, 2003), Naturally Healthy Babies and Children (10 Speed Press, 2003), ADHD Alternatives (Storey Publishing, 2000; with her husband Tracy Romm, Ed.D.), and Natural Healing After Birth: The Complete Guide to Postpar
