All parents want to make sure their teenage daughters are well-informed about issues related to sex, but how do advanced practice clinicians make sure teens are comfortable about their sexuality as they move into adulthood? Certified nurse midwife Evelyn Resh, director of women's health and sexuality counseling at Miraval Resorts, Tucson, Arizona, joins host Mimi Secor to talk about giving girls the knowledge and information they need to make healthy decisions about sex. They also discuss the impact that mothers have on their daughters' body image, and new sexual issues facing girls today.
