Each participant will leave feeling more confident and empowered through greater knowledge, understanding and acceptance of what’s to come, and how powerful, important, special and transformational this phase of their life is.
Parents and participants are supported to open up conversations to discuss periods and puberty (and who knows what else!) afterwards, having been held in the safe space of circle where this talk is safe and normalised.
If friends attend together, then they gain the added benefit of sisterhood, having this shared experience to refer back to, and to share wisdom with their other friends.
Parents are also supported to learn this wisdom alongside their daughter, feel safe and heard and be guided with tools and language to support their child.
And often, mothers are able to heal a part of their own relationship to their menarche and menstruation, through giving their child the support they wish they’d had as a child, and learning about their own cycles.
