Did you feel celebrated when you went through your menarche? Did your family, friends, or guardians have open, joyful conversations with you about it or was it frowned upon to talk about? Whichever way, these behaviours represent how our families speak and have spoken about menstruation for generations.

It seems like the majority of menstruators did not feel 100% supported when they began menstruating, however Stefanie Adler was one of the lucky ones who was celebrated by her family when she got her first period. Stefanie joins us for this episode of the menstruation mini-series to talk about her real life experiences when it comes to her menstruation journey. Stefanie is a Certified Nutrition Consultant, Women’s Hormone and Fertility Expert, Birth Doula, new mother, and second time guest on the Well Woman Podcast. If you want to check out her first time on the podcast, go back to episode 207 where we talked about egg quality, fertility, and conceiving.

Throughout this episode, Stefanie talks about her life as a new mother, the unique way that her mother celebrated her menarche, who taught her how to use a tampon (hint: not a family member), why it’s so important for women to create community and educate one another on menstruation, and so much more.
