Dr. Jennifer Ashton        

Leading Women's Health Expert & Chief Medical Correspondent for ABC News

Retiring stiff paper gowns and unrelatable medical advice, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, a Board-certified Ob-Gyn, author and TV medical correspondent, breaks the barrier between doctor and patient. Affectionately referred to as your all-in-one ‘BFF’/Ob-Gyn, Dr. Jennifer Ashton marries an unparalleled medical background with an accessible ‘girl’s-girl’ attitude. Though Dr. Ashton can easily speak to the latest beauty and fashion trends, this Ivy League graduate means business when it comes to women’s health.

From the onset, you might wonder how Dr. Ashton does it. Hailing from a family of 6 physicians and 1 nurse, this wife and mother of two possesses a uniquely well-rounded understanding of the human body. Leading by example, Dr. Ashton not only ‘talks the talk,’ but ‘walks the walk.’ When she’s not in the office, she can be found training for triathlons or following her very own Five-Day/Two- Day Eating Plan. Dr. Ashton demonstrates first-hand how to embrace and feel empowered at every stage of womanhood. This relatable and modern approach is highlighted in her latest book "Your Body Beautiful" (Penguin), a coveted resource for the medical community and women at every stage of their lives.

Dr. Ashton’s award-winning book, "The Body Scoop for Girls" (Penguin) was released in January 2010 and is an approachable guide to teenage health. In her second book, "Your Body Beautiful" (Penguin), released in January 2012, Dr. Ashton calls on her own beauty regimens, eating plan and fitness routines to offer a comprehensive health and lifestyle guide for women age 30-50. In May 2016, Dr. Ashton released her third book, "Eat This Not That When You’re Expecting", co-authored with Dave Zinczenko. She published her fourth book, "Life After Suicide: Finding Courage, Comfort & Community After Unthinkable Loss" in May 2019.
