A young person experiencing their period for the first time can be a magical experience or a terrifying one, all depending on how well they are prepared and how the people in their life honor the experience.
Most girls have the latter experience, where emotional support is lacking and the talk about periods is disempowering. The secrecy, shame, teasing, and negativity about periods have a life-long effect on the girl’s self-esteem, perspective of her body, and self-worth.
Getting your period for the first time is a rite of passage and it had been ceremoniously acknowledged it ancient cultures, but the significance, love, and honor of menarche got lost over time. It’s time to change the narratives for girls who will become the women of the future to a positive and empowering one. Teaching girls how to love themselves deeply, listen to the wisdom of their blooming bodies, and feel free of the stereotypes girls are faced with about their bodies and capabilities.
Through early nutritional and lifestyle work, we can create body positivity and lifelong menstrual health for your daughter. We can address changes she may be experiencing physically, emotionally, or energetically without having to rely on birth control to “manage her symptoms” or “regulate her cycle”. The earlier you start a self-care routine and learn how to trust your body, the chances of getting complications, as you grow older significantly reduces.
The First Moon package is as much for the daughter as is for the mother (or significant caregiver). Getting your period for the first time shouldn’t be treated like a medical emergency, with disregard or with drama. It’s a rite of passage. A beautiful and magical time to be cherished and honored.
