Hello my beauties,

I’m back from a full on trip to London- this country gal found it all a little overwhelming and my womb as usual decided to join in with an early bleed… thanks womb!!  On my return I’ve been putting in a lot of self care practices and pondering our cyclic ebb and flow and how it can be listened to even when we are in a busy situation. While I was away it came back to the 1%, what 1% can I do for myself today?

Here’s me and my daughter going on the Hogwarts Express!

And I came back home to a load of news about the Period.End of Sentence film  winning an Oscar (showing on Netflix), the 100 Vaginas documentary (on Channel 4 in the UK) and that the government will be rolling out menstrual education in schools…finally!! (see the catch up on all of the news on my Instagram!)

Anyway… back to Moon Times HQ! I’m thrilled to be releasing my new book, in collaboration with Stephanie Green of Dauntless Daughters … which leads me on to … Why Does Mummy Bleed?


You can Pre-order your copy now…fingers crossed it will be released officially on Spring Equinox…

Why does Mummy Bleed?  A beautifully illustrated book aimed at children, age 2 upwards, to explain about why mummy has periods and how they can support mummy with her cycle. Introducing cycle awareness, self care in a gentle story and picture book.

On The Blog
My latest musings about acceptance and surrender … particularly relevant to those of us with challenges happening- whether it’s perimenopause, cycle issues, health problems…a bit of acceptance goes a long way.
