            Thea Hayes spent twenty years living and working on Wave Hill Station in the Northern Territory. She arrived as a naive nineteen-year-old trainee nurse from Sydney, but when she left in 1979 she was married with four children and eager for her next adventure. And what twists and ...turns her new life in rural Queensland had in store. From a stint running a corner shop in the small town of Toogoolawah to dairy and cattle farming and working as a nurse in hospitals and nursing homes, Thea's life was eternally colourful. At the age of sixty-five, after losing her beloved husband Ralph, Thea moved to London to work as a nurse and travel around Europe. Back home in Australia, she found a second chance at love with a country boy from WA, and her new life with Bob began with a caravan, a dangerous farming floodplain and a swag full of laughs. A Country Nurse charts Thea's rich and inspiring life, from Wave Hill to North Stradbroke Island; London to the Riverina in NSW, and just about everywhere in between. This is the story of an ordinary girl from Sydney who has lived her extraordinary life to the fullest.

            Women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries and strokes. The XX Brain reveals groundbreaking research showing that women's brains age distinctly fro...m men's, due mostly to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Until now, medical research has focused on 'bikini medicine', assuming that women are essentially men with breasts and tubes. The XX Brain reveals how the two powerful X chromosomes that distinguish women from men impact women's brains first and foremost. Taking on all aspects of women's health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to protect the female brain, including diet and lifestyle strategies proven to work for women. She also examines the controversies about soy and hormonal replacement therapy, the perils of environmental toxins, and gut health. Luckily, it is never too late to take care of yourself. The XX Brain gives women the first plan to address the unique risks and strengths of the female brain for optimal, lifelong brain health.

            One doctor's testament to the importance of listening - truly listening - to women and their medical experiences of pregnancy and childbirth. Although there are countless books aimed at expectant mothers and fathers, on subjects from prenatal nutrition to birthing methods, there ...is a lack of works that attempt to illuminate, unpack, and chronicle the complex, potentially life-and-death truth of this fundamental human experience. High Risk fills that gap. From an expert in maternal-foetal medicine - the subspecialty of obstetrics that concerns high-risk pregnancies - here is a timely and unflinching account of all that pregnancy, labour, and birth can entail. As an outspoken champion of women's health, a mother of four, and a humane, wry, and altogether remarkable writer, Dr Chavi Eve Karkowsky tells of miracles and joy, but also of challenge and loss - illustrating the complexity of reproduction and the health services that surround it. With historical insight and journalistic verve, she unpacks what is involved for women, for a family, and for us as a society, and explores what's at risk when these aspects of life remain clouded in mystery and misinformation.
