About the Author
Dr. Jennifer Lincoln is a board-certified OB-GYN who currently practices as an OB Hospitalist and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Lincoln loves using social media to provide evidence-based, easy-to-digest information while busting the (many) myths surrounding vaginal and reproductive health. She believes that breaking down the shame and stigma surrounding our bodies is the best way to become informed and empowered. She is married to a pediatrician, and together they have two young boys (who will definitely be reading this book at some point).
I absolutely love "Let's Talk About Down There!" This book is beautiful, informative, and welcoming. It answers so many questions that we have about our bodies, from common myths to out-there social media claims. When I received it and my husband and I read through it (both doctors!) we said, "wow, we had to go to medical school to learn this stuff, no one else should have to do that to know basic things about health and sexuality!" I will be sharing this book with my friends and family, and as an OB-GYN, highly recommending it to my patients. Thank you Dr. Lincoln! (Dr. Marta Perez)
