FREE Community Clinic Day: Stop Period Poverty & Period Pain
Posted by Dr. Alda Ngo
Come to our FREE Community Clinic day to ‘Stop Period Poverty and Period Pain’ !!
Drop in to learn tips on how to prevent often dismissed menstrual symptoms, like cramps and PMS.
Receive a free community acupuncture and massage treatment in exchange for a donation of menstrual products (which we will contribute to No Woman Without‘s third annual pad drive this month.)
When we heard about this month’s third annual No Woman Without.Period campaign to address Period Poverty, and knowing that people are forced to choose between buying food and buying menstrual products, we knew we had to jump in and help!
We see this as an opportunity to de-stigmatize menstruation by getting it out of the closet and educating women about their bodies and their menstrual health.
A recently published study shows that period pain is linked to losing almost nine days of productivity at school and work per year. There needs to be an end to the normalization of women’s pain.
We are also assembling a limited number of ‘Menstrual Survival Kits’ for sale during the free community clinic day.
The kits will be featuring:
– specially formulated Blood Tonic Bone Broth from popular Edmonton restaurant RGE RD
– an herbal heat pack
– an herbal menstrual survival tea
– acupressure points
plus more tools for menstrual support.
There will be a limited number and first come first served 🙂
All proceeds from Menstrual Survival Kit sales will be donated to No Woman Without.
