If you didn’t make it to the live Google Hangout you can watch it here. I answer questions regarding fibroids, uterine positions, painful period, prolapsed uteri, diastasis recti and how movement and manual therapies can help. We covered a lot of information in a short amount of time, so I’ve included a resource guide below in case you’d like to learn more on any given subject. The information is general and is not meant to be medical advice.
We didn’t get to all the questions, so I’ll try to answer those in another post. Thank you all for showing up and writing in!
If you found this information useful please consider participating in the KickStarter for the Blood Cycle Conference. Your help is truly appreciated! Let’s change the way we view menstruation and how we care for our wombs!

In the video above I mentioned making strong infusions of nettle leaf with an ounce of dried herb. Personally, I like to steep it for four hours or overnight as taught by Susan Weed. However this may result in a taste too intense for some and four hours is too long for delicate aromatic plants. I don’t believe I mentioned that in the video, so I made this guide for your convenience.
