We are committed to breaking the period taboo and ensuring Black and Brown girls, women, and people who menstruate have healthy menstrual cycles and become agents of change in their communities. We do this work through evidence-based menstrual health education, intergenerational and intercultural community conversations, resource connection, mentorship, and sisterhood-building activities.
We partner with communities to provide equitable and sustainable menstrual education and period products in the U.S., Liberia, Gambia, Nigeria, Haiti, Kenya, and Sao Tome and Principe.
LYM One Day Childbirth Education Program
This One Day Childbirth Education Program provides parents with an overview of what to expect during this important time of their lives.
The goal of this One-day Childbirth course is to provide expectant parents with evidence-based information on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period so they can make intuitive decisions throughout the peripartum process.
We facilitate monthly period conversations led by Black and Brown physicians and public health professionals for adults discussing all things related to reproductive health, such as fibroids, endometriosis, menopause, PCOS, vaginal care, period pain, skin care, endocrine disrupting chemicals in beauty products, and more.
Love Your Menses’ Menstrual & Mental Wellness Retreat is a safe and healing space for girls and their parents/guardians to rest, engage in meaningful dialogue about reproductive health, mental health, share period stories, build sisterhood, prioritize their wellness, and get access to the resources they need to
flow through life, unapologetically!
