“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.  Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

Marie Curie

Hi, I’m Milina.

I’m on a mission to normalise the period conversation.  

Our periods are about so much more than a bleed once a month.  Our menstrual cycle signals our overall wellbeing and leads us through four different stages of being.  It truly is a magical part of nature.  Let’s change the way we talk about periods and give our daughters the full picture.

Once we normalise the period conversation, every other conversation becomes easier too.  Believe me when I say I know how awkward it is to start, but also know that this pays off when your teen comes to you with even more awkward conversations.

So whether you are here to start having these positive conversations with your daughters, or you want to make the same positive change in your own communities, I welcome you, and thank you for contributing to this change too.

And for you perimenopausal mums, I’m coming for your next!  This is a whole other conversation that needs to be had, and stigma to be rid of!

Much love

xx

"Milina the workshop was absolutely amazing and completely exceeded my expectations!! I wasn't sure if my daughter would find it awkward and uncomfortable but she really enjoyed it, and said she learned more than she did at the school talk. AND it was less embarrassing than the school one. We both really enjoyed spending this sacred precious time together, and I know she felt very loved having this day with me <3 Thank you so much!"

I just wanted to say thank you to Milina for bringing this amazing workshop to the surface for our daughters. My daughter absolutely loved the workshop and the small group she was part of. She learnt so much and it has opened up a million conversations with her and I since we went to it. She has read 2 of the books already that were recommended and is going back for second reads until I find her more. With her, I have noticed that she needs to do her own research and have her own experience and then she will come to me for questions later rather than me sitting down with her with a book and reading about puberty and the birds and the bees so in this instance leaving her for the morning in the workshop and joining later worked a treat. This has been a great eye opener to work out her way of learning. Before it was just a big embarrassment and now it is just a normal topic of conversation when she has something on her mind.
