There is so much more to having a menstrual cycle than simply managing periods, and it is so important that children have a place to learn about all the changes, super powers and self-care needs they will experience as they reach puberty in an holistic empowering way.
The messages children receive about their body, their periods and what it means to grow up are extremely powerful, so why not take the chance to ensure your child gets accurate information and is supported in a healthy, empowering way so she feels ready to embrace her changes, her power and her body.
Covering self-care, and teaching children how to get the best out of their superpowers as they begins their menstrual cycle, first moon circles are doing period education differently. our circles are proving a fun and enjoyable way for girls and children who have or will have periods to learn, play, and feel supported at a pivotal time in their lives.
“I got to learn all about my period and body parts for when I need it and so I can talk about it without being embarrassed.” – child participant
“My 11 yr old daughter just did a First Moon Circle and got so much out of the event. Her and her friends have a support group now, thank you.” – Parent
“It was so worthwhile doing and my daughter is now not embarrassed to talk to me about these issues so I can’t thank you enough for hosting these sessions” – Parent
Your child will receive an amazing gift bag with eco friendly period products and her own beaded bracelet that she’ll make in the session to remind her of what she learns. Plus she’ll get to keep a 22-page booklet that explains all the knowledge and wisdom she’ll need to support her through puberty and into adulthood. Mums, you’ll probably learn something in this too.
The final part of this session is a beautiful Mother-Daughter celebration where you can gift your child advice, wishes and show her you’re supporting her as she grows up.
These sessions are ideal for girls aged 9-12 before they begin their periods, but if they have started they will get so much out of learning all the things they have missed out on so far.
Having an inclusive and safety-first approach I welcome children from all backgrounds and also children who will have periods but might not identify with or feel comfortable as a ‘girl’ or the idea of ‘becoming a woman’ including non-binary and trans children who will or do menstruate. I believe everyone who will have a period needs to understand how their body works. If you would like your child to be able to come but aren’t sure of this is for them please CONTACT ME so we can have a chat about your circumstances.
