parent resources

Hey parents,

We’ve put together some resources to help you find out more about how to talk to your child about their changing body and menstrual cycle. Whether you can attend a First Moon Circle or not, our hope is that you’ll feel confident to have conversations with your child, and to prepare, support and celebrate their big milestone of Menarche, their first period rite of passage, as well as to understand and honour your own cycle too.

Featuring age-appropriate explanations of what puberty, periods, care products, and cycle self-care are, plus cycle charts, discount codes on period products and so much more, this guide goes way beyond what’s covered in school, whilst keeping it light and simple to understand.

How to pick the right period care product for you and your child

There are so many period care products on the market these days, and not all of them are as healthy and safe as the others, so it can be a bit unsettling trying to work out where the best place to start is nowadays. From pads and liners, to tampons, to moon cups and period pants, there is a lot to choose from. So how do you know what to look for?

How To Get Children Excited About Periods with Beth Moxon (Wild Flow Podcast)

Creator of First Moon Circles, Charlotte Pointeaux, is host of Wild Flow Podcast. On this episode she chatted with First Moon Circle Facilitator Beth Moxon, who is a Cycle Coach, Teacher-Trainer and Period fan!
Beth channels her inner fire to ensure that menstrual shame is a thing of the past. She is a powerhouse who is educating her own community through holding First Moon Circles, and is starting big conversations on TikTok where a huge proportion of children now receive their menstrual education. In today’s podcast, Beth and I get together as two women on a mission, chatting about:
  • The different ‘tell’ signs our bodies give us 24h before we start bleeding,
  • Why Beth doesn’t believe in resting for the whole period, how she shows up for a podcast on Cycle Day 2, and how she supports herself through it instead,
  • Beth’s story and journey to doing the amazing work she does today,
  • Her perspective of the (UK) school period education guidelines, the limitations schools are under, changing the perspective that schools need to cover it all, and how she is stepping up to contribute another layering of education for children and parents.
  • Her vision for children and the right she believes all children have to a high quality, empowering menstrual education,
  • The power of language, and how we perpetuate menstrual shame without realising it through the words we use, and much more!

Raising Period Positive Kids Begins With Healing Yourself with Giselle Pitt (Wild Flow Podcast)

Giselle Pitt is one of our original First Moon Circle Facilitators, and is mad passionate about raising her own three daughters and son to be period- positive. In their house, conversations about where in their cycles each person in, and what they need, is an everyday occurrence. 

In our conversation Giselle shares that it was far from always being this way, and that it was her eldest daughter’s struggles with menstrual problems that prompted Giselle to learn from scratch all things cycle awareness. When she joined our First Moon Circle Facilitator Training  she realised that to really empower and educate her own children, and give them the positive, prepared experience she missed out on as a 12 year old, Giselle would have to first look at her own relationship to her body, womb and cycle.
