First Spot: Stories of Menarche, Part 1
Show Notes

Have you ever thought about your first period?  Do you ever consider how it shaped you as a person, womb holder or woman?  I think this moment and the time just after it is more powerful than we think.  It imprints on us several impressions about womanhood or wombhood that we’re usually not mature enough to process at the time.  

Now is that time.  I’m interviewing 8 people over 3 podcast episodes about their first period.  Today you will hear the stories of Christina, Trisa and Susan.  They are powerful, sad, funny and so much more.  Do you see yourself in any of these stories?  Does it make you realize you have more to say about your first period than you thought you did?  Let’s find out!

The book we talked about is called In the Flow by Alissa Vitti
Here are a list of books on periods and woman’s bodies I just like to recommend to people:
