THREE STEPS TO A BETTER FIRST PERIOD FOR YOUR DAUGHTER
You’re at the point where your daughter is growing, probably a lot quicker than you expected, and it’s time to have more open conversations around periods. This guide is just some of the ways I have helped mums and carers have more open conversations and prepare their daughters confidently and comfortable, without shame or embarrassment.
GOING BACK TO SCHOOL WITH HER FIRST PERIOD – LETTER TEMPLATE
Your daughter has just got her first period and one of her big concerns is what to do at school. It’s a common concern, that can lead to real worry and anxiety, particularly for our younger girls, 12 and under.
Download my letter template to schools to ensure your daughter has the most positive, inclusive and supportive environment for her when she is away from home. Together we can create a more supportive culture at schools when it comes to periods.
BOOKS TO TEACH YOUR DAUGHTER ABOUT HER MENSTRUAL CYCLE
Want to start or keep the conversation going with some books? This resource includes books broken up over age ranges with many that are great to read together. Some of these books are aimed at those who have yet to get their period. Others will be great for older girls who want to know more. Also listed are recommendations of books to help us parent our girls through these teen years.

There is so much about our menstrual cycle we were never taught, and that are still being discovered! This list of books, podcasts, and experts to follow will get you up to speed with everything related to your cycle and how it affects physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. This really is our super power ladies. Even if you no longer have a period, your body still cycles in the same way.
