Four Self-Paced Video Sessions
Total: 75 minutes!
💕 Session 1: Introduction- A welcome video to girls and their parents, introducing the idea that a menstrual cycle is what enables a woman to eventually become pregnant. We cover basic internal female anatomy, and discuss the equation of life (egg + sperm = baby) which leads us to focus on the "star" of the menstrual cycle: the egg cell!
💕 Session 2: The Story of the Kingdom- This creative analogy teachers girls how to tell the story of the menstrual cycle through learning key roles and functions of four basic hormones: FSH, estrogen, LH, and progesterone. How do they help the kingdom prepare to welcome a very special guest? How does the guest prepare for its journey? What happens when the guest decides not to stay?
“I love your use of imagery and story telling. Such a useful tool for helping to set the scene for what is happening and why!" - Tori
“Loved your use of 'the kingdom'. You made it easy for my daughter to understand.” - Crystal
“The metaphor was fabulous! It helped clarify and remind me of how it all works and I’ve been doing NFP forever😂! I’m so so so grateful to have found you. You are doing excellent work! Thank you!” - Alexis
💕 Session 3: All About Periods- This is where we decrease the anxiety and the nerves! Girls learn about what it's like to have a period, what her options are for hygiene products, and some key puberty signs which might tell her when her period will start. This section includes criteria to help girls determine if their cycles fall into a healthy range of presentation or if they should seek help from a trusted adult-- because a teenage girl's cycle is NOT THE SAME as a grown woman's cycle. And we should know the difference!
💕 Session 4: Creating a Culture of Care- Preparation doesn't end with knowledge-- now we need to learn how to be proactive about creating a Culture of Care for ourselves and one another! Girls learn about how the cycle affects things like energy levels and moods, how to put together a period kit, and our role in creating a positive culture of girls-supporting-girls around menstruation.
