First Moon Circle

July 1 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm AEST

A$138.00 – A$220.00
first moon circles

give your child a positive, empowered start to puberty and menstruation

There is so much more to having a menstrual cycle than simply managing periods, and it is so important that children have a place to learn about all the changes, super powers and self-care needs they will experience as they reach puberty in an holistic empowering way. 

The messages children receive about their body, their periods and what it means to grow up are extremely powerful, so why not take the chance to ensure your child gets accurate information and is supported in a healthy, empowering way so she feels ready to embrace her changes, her power and her body. 

Covering self-care, and teaching children how to get the best out of their superpowers as they begins their menstrual cycle, First Moon Circles are doing period education differently. Our circles are proving a fun and enjoyable way for girls and children who have or will have periods to learn, play, and feel supported at a pivotal time in their lives.

In a first moon circle your child will learn:

  • What periods are, why we have them, and what happens during the whole menstrual cycle from ovulation, the pre-menstrual phase and the period (because there is so much more to it than just managing blood!)
  • The signs and stages of puberty so she can work out when her first period may come.
  • Period care: product options, play and practice so when she needs to choose and use a product, she’s done it before, and how to create a supportive network around her.
  • An overview of menstrual cycle self-care so she can nurture herself and be nurtured as her energy changes during her inner seasons.
  • Receiving mother’s wisdom and well-wishes so she knows its not just she who bleeds, and that she has a village of people to support her through the process.
  • Including craft, afternoon tea, a lovely gift bag and keepsake copy of the First Moon Guide.

the run of the day

2-4PM: CHILDREN ONLY FOR THE FIRST TWO HOURS.

  • Ice breaking and story telling
  • period and puberty overview
  • period care options and creating networks of support
  • q+a
  • break

 

  • the final 90 minutes is a mother-daughter circle focusing on bonding and having special time together, which will set up a powerful foundation going into the teen years.
  • teaching of cycle self-care to mothers and daughters so you can both talk about and do this together at home as a shared experience.
  • creating a ‘first moon bracelet’ to represent and remind of the four seasons of the menstrual cycle
  • wisdom and well-wishes shared from mothers to children in the circle
  • tea and light refreshment of cycle-nourishing foods
 

Who are First Moon Circles for?

These sessions are ideal for girls aged 9-12 before they begin their periods, but if they have started they will get so much out of learning all the things they have missed out on so far.
Having an inclusive and safety-first approach I welcome children from all backgrounds and also children who will have periods but might not identify with or feel comfortable as a ‘girl’ or the idea of ‘becoming a woman’ including non-binary and trans children who will or do menstruate. I believe everyone who will have a period needs to understand how their body works. If you would like your child to be able to come but aren’t sure of this is for them please contact me so we can have a chat about your circumstances. 

first moon circles are absolutely overflowing with value and will empower both mother and daughter forever

  • Children leave feeling more confident and empowered through greater knowledge, understanding and acceptance of what’s to come, and how powerful, important, special and transformational this phase of their life is.
  • Parents and children are supported to open up conversations to discuss periods and puberty (and who knows what else!) afterwards, having been held in the safe space of circle where this talk is safe and normalised.
  • If friends attend together, then they gain the added benefit of sisterhood, having this shared experience to refer back to, and to share wisdom with their other friends.  
  • Parents are also supported to learn this wisdom alongside their daughter, feel safe and heard and be guided with tools and language to support their child. 
  • And often, mothers are able to heal a part of their own relationship to their menarche and menstruation, through giving their child the support they wish they’d had as a child, and learning about their own cycles.
 
 

CHILDREN ALSO RECEIVE over $100 worth of gifts including:

  1. A Moon Pack: a special gift pack containing period care samples and  fabulous self-care items to support her emotionally, physically and spiritually in a lovely case.
  2. My ‘First Moon Guide’ – a keepsake booklet full of fact sheets, guide to self-care for the cycle and a beginner cycle tracking sheet which you can keep reading and referring to with your child.
  3. Keepsake First Moon bracelet which you and your daughter will make during the circle.   
  4. Plus afternoon tea for both child and parent is included. 
A First Moon Guide by Charlotte Pointeaux for First Moon Circle School.

The Lodge, 98-100 sunset point drive Mittagong
Notes: 

Once you book your child to attend, I’ll send you some information to prepare you, the parent/guardian, ahead of the day, as well as to help you prepare your child for what to expect.

I’ll also share guidance with you on how to prepare your positive guidance that you want to share with the group on the day, which in turn will support you to keep this open conversation going at home. (If you don’t wish to say anything, I understand, and see you – however I do encourage you to acknowledge that by sharing some words you are healing your own relationship to your cycle, and breaking the pattern for your child. I am available for support sessions prior to the First Moon Circle, please email me about this).
