Each week Amanda Laird, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, has casual conversations with guests about the health and wellness topics we’re not supposed to talk about: menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, birth control, sexuality, mental health, hormonal health and reproductive health, through the lenses of feminism and body politics. We are not truly empowered until we all understand the bodies we live in.
