August Eduard Martin (14 July 1847, Jena – 26 November 1933, Berlin) was a German obstetrician and gynecologist. His father, Eduard Arnold Martin (1809–1875), was also a specialist in OB/GYN.

He studied medicine at the universities of Jena and Berlin, receiving his doctorate at the latter institution in 1870. He worked as an assistant to his father in Berlin, where he obtained his habilitation in 1876. In Berlin he opened a private clinic that became renowned for operative gynecology. From 1899 to 1907 he served as a full professor at the University of Greifswald, where he was also appointed head of the Frauenklinik.

He is credited with developing a variety of gynecological and obstetrical surgical procedures, being especially recognized for his work involving vaginal operations. He also introduced several instruments into medicine, that included a Scheidenspekulum. With Max Saenger, he founded the publication "Monatsschrift für Geburtshilfe und Gynäkologie" in 1894.
