Become Your Own Contraception and Fertility Expert
Jane Bennett is a powerhouse in the menstrual education world. Having been working to support women and children with understanding their fertility and contraception naturally for many decades, she has empowered multiple generations to take back their bodies, and be well educated and informed to make informed choices for both understanding and supporting fertility, and contraception that doesn’t need to involve taking hormonal birth control.
I loved meeting Jane for the first time – its such a perk of doing this podcast, I get to have conversations with people I admire, respect and have learned from such as Jane. We spoke about Jane’s mission and journey to creating her legacy that she’s built, what the different types of contraception are and how they work, why you might want to consider not taking hormonal birth control, how to come off birth control and what that might be like, and how we can share information with teens so they can make informed choices for themselves.

On Wild Flow Podcast we’re talking womb wisdom, womb healing through massage and menstrual cycle awareness. Today’s guest Alisha Rose Kruger is a holistic menstrual cycle coach and womb healing guide. She supports women in discovering the wisdom of their menstrual cycles and deepening into reverent relationship with their wombs.
In episode 71 of Wild Flow Podcast I’m chatting with Asina Mona Kupke all about reconnecting to your cyclical nature to tap into your soul’s purpose through the phases of your menstrual cycle, your intuition and working with crystals. We wandered through a delicious conversation which moved through:
How to choose crystal jewellery to support the phases of the menstrual cycle and inner child healing,
What the soul purpose is, and how the soul expresses itself,
How you know you can hear its your soul talking versus your ego,
How your soul voice might change across the phases of your menstrual cycle,
Tools to cultivate a clean, high vibrational vessel in body and mind, so you can tap into the callings of your soul, and come into more alignment with your soul’s purpose, and
How Asina’s soul is calling her to relocate across the world to transform and let go of some parts of her work to create space for the new to come through! Watch this space!
Today’s guest on Wild Flow is Joeli Caparco. Joeli is here to expand the horizons on who gets to participate in menstrual cycle awareness, and to specifically include people who identify as neurodivergent, queer and those who aren’t tapping into their body’s rhythm for fertility purposes. Menstrual Cycle Awareness is an archetypal experience of inner seasonal strengths and shadows that can bring us into sharp focus of how we express and embody different variations of ourselves across the menstrual cycle. For many its a very powerful self-awareness and empowerment tool, yet there is a tendency for people to think they should experience their cycle just as the textbook tells them, leaving them feeling further disconnection to their body and cycle when it doesn’t fit the mould.
