In the 5th and newest edition of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, Christiane Northrup, a board-certified OB/GYN physician, empowers women to understand and take control of their body and health both physically and emotionally.


As in former versions, this book covers topics encompassing many aspects of women’s health like menstruation, menopause, sexuality, and family planning. Northrup defined this edition as her post-#MeToo book, emphasizing the importance of flourishing, which is the idea that one’s own power to get and remain well is “far greater than the government’s, than your doctor’s, than your nurse practitioner’s, than your acupuncturist’s, than your insurance company’s.”

Women’s bodily processes are often seen as systems that cause them pain and suffering. However, Northrup flips this idea on its head by claiming that the female body was designed to be a source of pleasure and strength.

The resources in this book align with the goals of Pandia Health, the ONLY women-led, women-founded and doctor-led birth control delivery service. Both empower women to take control of their bodies and, by extension, their lives.



Northrup’s book offers life-changing methods for taking care of your body through natural and supplementary ways. Pandia provides FREE birth control delivery to your front doorstep along with swag items and resources on reproductive health.
