A sacred time

Do you remember getting your first period? Was this a special time? Or was it awkward and uncomfortable? Did you feel safe, celebrated, and strong? Or confused and overwhelmed?

Unfortunately, for many girls the transition into womanhood is marred by discomfort, embarrassment, and even shame. I’m on a mission to rewrite this narrative and help young women feel confident within their changing bodies.

What is Girl Talk?

‘Girl Talk’ is a five-week programme that provides a safe space for girls aged 12-16 years old to learn and ask questions about their changing body in a supportive, non-judgemental environment.

Over the five weeks, we will cover topics such as menstruation, body image, the influence of media, peer pressure, and sexuality.

Can I attend Girl Talk with my daughter?

Girl Talk is a safe, confidential, and fun space for girls to explore and celebrate this unique time in their life. It’s designed for girls to attend alone or with friends, without a parent or caregiver.

Many girls talk to their parents less around adolescence. They often turn to places like social media or the internet – even if they have a close relationship with the adults in their life. Girl Talk can provide the answers to some of their burning questions in a fun, honest, safe way.

With 15 years of experience as a midwife, I have an in-depth understanding of women’s health. I’m also not a family member! Girls may be more likely to open up to me and ask questions they may be too embarrassed to talk about with their parents.
