As menstruators we experience many different menstrual cycle transitions in our lifetime. From getting out first period (menarche), to trying to conceive, giving birth, menopause and more. Ultimately how we support ourselves through these transitions sets us up for the next. To explore these transitions and how we can depend our own menstrual cycle awareness through healing I’m joined by Kimberly Johnson in this episode, a women’s thought leader and creator of the 4th Trimester!


Meet Our Podcast Guest:

[Cycle Day – Wise Woman]

Kimberly Ann Johnson was a yoga teacher and bodyworker whose body, and life, was permanently altered when she sustained an injury during childbirth.

Determined not to get a full pelvic floor reconstructive surgery, she traveled the world learning about postpartum practices. After healing herself, she became a doula, Sexological Bodyworker, and Somatic Experiencing practitioner so that she could help women through this important and overlooked phase of development that is the postpartum period.

As is taught in many traditional cultures, she believes that when nurtured and taken care of properly, women can emerge from this rite of passage stronger, more whole, and with more access to their power. She believes the same is true of relationship, that with the right tools, marriages and partnerships can be more connected and robust after children. For this reason, she wrote The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring Your Vitality. 

In her new book, Call of the Wild, Kimberly applies a broader scope to trauma and healing. Part science, part medicine, and part cultural-political work, Call of the Wild helps all women tap into the wisdom and resilience of their bodies to rewire their nervous system, heal from all kinds of trauma (from “small t” traumas of getting ghosted or falling out with a close friend, to the “capital T” traumas of sexual assault or a life-threatening illness), and live fully.
