Founded in 1951, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has over 55,000 members and is the nation's leading group of professionals providing health care for women. ACOG works primarily in four areas: serving as a strong advocate for quality health care for women; maintaining the highest standards of clinical practice and continuing education for its members; promoting patient education and stimulating patient understanding of and involvement in medical care; increasing awareness among its members and the public of the changing issues facing women's health care. ACOG houses a resource center which acts as a clearinghouse for ob/gyn information for both professionals and consumers.


The College publishes a series of booklets for consumer education. Materials have been produced to aid the professional in educating the patient in the areas of sex education, parenthood, maternal health care, maternal nutrition, adolescent pregnancy, and domestic violence. The resource center has prepared guides to patient education in childbirth, menopause, infertility, sex education, and contraception. View ACOG publications that are available online:
