This is part of the Pants of Empowerment project, where women share the voice of their feminine nature and in return, receive a fantastic pair of pants to empower them. All names have been changed.
"I am in awe and impressed by the perimeter of my pelvis like I was in a cathedral, there was a holiness, like wow!
My womb is strong and my left ovary is where it should be, and the right ovary feels a bit crooked, low down and wonky, not quite right. That took my attention. Why would that be? I tried to put the ovary up, in my imagination, but it wasn’t ...
These knickers are for a woman who has re-claimed her vulva and called it her own. No more ugly names. No more downstairs. All Lady Garden.
These shorts are for a woman who is tired of being let down by men and has connected deeply to the power of her ovaries.

What would your clitoris say, if she had a voice?
"I'm feeling a little neglected, rather like a gorgeous pair of dancing shoes left out in the rain. My leather isn't so shiny anymore, the dye has run and I've lost my shape. You haven't been looking after me! And when you remember me you just complain that I don't work so well anymore. It's a bit rich.
I need your love!
I need ...
Having completed the first phase of training with Red School I am now taking case studies for the Menstrual Medicine Circle process. You are welcome to have a chat and see if it's the right thing for you, or you can book directly online.
What is a Menstrual Medicine Circle Process?
I specialise in supporting women during perimenopause and menopause, a time when we are transforming into a beautiful, better version of ourselves.
Our culture doesn’t support this transformation, which might involve slinging out what doesn’t work in your ...
Bump massage can do wonderful things for you and your baby, making your pregnancy easier as well as potentially improving your experience of the birth. Yet most of my clients are surprised when I outline the benefits of massaging their bumps beyond trying to avoid stretch-marks.
I have created detailed instructions for you to give yourself a bump massage at home; there's a visual guide with written instructions as well as an audio to guide you through this deeply relaxing practice.
It’s a natural, instinctive thing to do and you’re probably ...
I am no longer taking on new pregnancy clients, so here is a list of some great massage therapists nearby. As always when finding a new therapist, as well as looking at their site, give them a ring and see if you feel a connection. Ask lots of questions and ultimately trust your guts and you won't go far wrong.
As a leaving gift, I have created a Yoga Nidra meditation for you to recreate the feeling of being safely held and connected with your body, just like when having a massage. It will help you relax deeply into yourself if you are pregnant or wanting to ...
If you go to a beauty salon or Spa and book a massage, they will always ask if you are pregnant and in most cases will refuse to give you a massage except where they have specially trained therapists. But does this mean that massage is unsafe in the first trimester?
Is there proof?
In truth there has been no research into the safety of massage in the first trimester so we can’t prove it either way, but massage is akin to gentle exercise in that it improves circulation, oxygenates the blood and releases endorphins. As the NHS recommend that pregnant women stay as active ...
Menstrual pain is no joke, 40 – 70% of women of reproductive age experience some kind of pain, with 10% of women describing severe symptoms. That’s a lot of regular women with hot water bottles. In fact, there is no need for us to experience pain, it is not healthy or necessary.
1. Menstrual cycle awareness
You know about pre-menstrual grumps I bet. OK maybe not grumps but it used to be full-on raging in my case.
“Will you please stop breathing like that!!!”
But what if I was to suggest that your energy and internal weather changed all through your ...
I started on personal growth pretty young. When I was 13 my big sister was into the (frankly terrifying) Exegisis, a UK version of Est and though I was thankfully too young to participate (thank the Goddess). I was very influenced by listening to her new world view – so refreshing and different to my highly buttoned up middle-class mum and dad.
This went on through Chuck Spezzano workshops, way-out-there healing, voice dialogue, bodywork, Reiki, rolfing, meditation, massage not to mention £100’s of pounds on self-help books. Then the biggest ...
