by | Feb 5, 2020 | Menstrual Cycle Tips, Periods, Well Woman Podcast | 0 comments

Are using Tampons, Pads, Period Underwear, Cloths really safe? It’s a topic that’s consistently brought up at every event I speak at and throughout our Well Woman Academy. Which makes us think… Are they? For this hot topic discussion I reached out to the wonderful April Davis from The Vagina Blog (yep am entire blog dedicated to Vagina’s) to share with us the truths of what’s really in our menstrual products. In the episode we cover all the popular menstrual products and the newer products on the market too, I mean just because they saw organic does that mean they’re safe? You’ll have to tune in to find out. .

Meet our Podcast Guest:

April Davis is the creator of The Vagina Blog, for everything female health related. Safe to say she care’s a lot about vaginas. Between attending births as a doula, a photographer and a birth assistant to a midwife she’s seen a lot of them. Friends and family send her pictures of pussy wallets, plush uteri and hilarious sex books. And it wasn’t until she spent a weekend at a conference for sex therapists that she thought – “I’ve truly thought I had found my people”.
