About this Episode

Have you tried free bleeding? We learn all about this approach to periods on this week's episode. We talk about the shame and stigma surrounding periods and how bleeding your freest can help break those barriers. We learn about the environmental impact of menstrual products, talk about those who do not have access to products, and learn about some other unexpected benefits of just letting it all bleed out. We also give tips if you want to try it!
