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.
