Periods: that special time of the month when you bleed from your vagina--fun! In this episode, Miriam the Midwife covers what a normal period entails, and talks with menstrual cup experts Kim and Amanda from the website Put A Cup In It about why and how folks can use menstrual cups to make their periods more comfortable and healthy. She also answers questions about how parents can prepare for their child's first period, clues as to when you can expect to go through menopause, how menstrual cycles can change across your lifetime, and more. On Part 2 of this episode, we'll talk about PMS and "monster periods" which are heavy, painful, and/or distinctly not normal, and how to deal.
