#BHM ‘American Queens of Gynaecology: Mothers of Medicine’


  • A deeply harrowing and thought provoking poem. It prompted me to do a lot of research. I had heard of the term “Sims speculum” through my clinical training but now I know the weight that term carries. I’m very impressed with this poem. The writer deservea a lot of praise 🙌

  • Thanks for your comment, I’m sure the poet Altherhythm will be ecstatic when she reads this!
