    Holistic Miscarriage & Abortion Education with Samantha Zipporah

    Today’s episode covers a topic that is hardly ever talked about in the mainstream: miscarriage and abortion and how they affect a person’s physical health and hormones as well as their emotional health.

Samantha is devoted to breaking the spells of oppression in reproductive and sexual health through collective healing, liberation, and education. A former birth doula, she provides radical love for navigating the womb continuum and reclaiming ancestral wisdom.
     
    In this episode, we talk about how our culture disempowers people who menstruate, the over-medicalization of processes of the womb, putting pregnancy termination into context, the risks associated with pregnancy release, the psycho-spiritual aspects of miscarriages and abortions, and so much more!

    Periods & Poops: How The Menstrual Cycle Affects The Digestive System

    Periods & Poops: How The Menstrual Cycle Affects The Digestive System

    It’s fair to say that the subject of poop, and especially girls and women and pooping, is a little taboo.

    I don’t know about you, but this topic was extremely embarrassing for me to talk about for a very long time. As a teenager living in gut health hell, I was too embarrassed to use the bathroom at school and instead tried to suffer through it until I got home. No way would I risk someone being in the stall next to me hearing what was happening!

    On top of the social issues, keeping poops as a don’t ask-don’t tell topic meant I had no idea that my digestive issues were linked to all my hormonal woes. Here’s the thing - we have to talk about this stuff because just like periods, our digestive health tells us a lot about our bodies but we won’t know when something is wrong if we don’t even know what is normal, to begin with. Let’s push through the discomfort and start talking.

    The Four Phases of the Menstrual Cycle

    The Four Phases of the Menstrual Cycle

    Female bodies are cyclical by nature, producing varying quantities of hormones at different points in our monthly menstrual cycle. These hormone fluctuations create four distinct phases of your cycle.

    Learning about and embracing your internal cyclical nature is one of the most powerful and effective ways to maximize your true potential in all areas of life. Our periods don’t have to hold us back, even when we assume they will. It’s your unique cycle and you will need to learn to observe it, understand it, and work with it.

Victoria Sydney/Mildura ,

The place to go for deep topics in a fun light

I love The Period Party! Not just when my boyfriend says “the what party??” but when I’m looking for answers about my body and my mind, it’s the perfect podcast for a whole spectrum of fascinating information and each episode is fun and funny and easy to understand (even the more science heavy episodes). Nicole and Nat are sensitive to the special considerations for all their listeners, making it a friendly space for everyone. Highly recommend this podcast.

Nickname taken sad face ,

Frustrating

Hard to listen to as hosts continually speak over guests and tell their own stories!!

Pyrrole disorder

Love listening to the show, been a great source of information and education. Can you please do a story on pyrrole disorder, I’ve done test to find out if I have it but don’t understand it completely other than what I have googled! I believe it is similar to adrenal fatigue in that it is not widely accepted in traditional medical circles.
