On this week’s episode we welcome our first guest host, Muneera Fontaine of Peaceful Earth Graceful Birth. With Muneera we talk all about womb wellness–from birth to menstruation to womb steams. We answer a few listener questions about doulas, advocating for yourself with your provider and when is the best time for a yoni steam. We end with the things giving us life–Wakanda, anti-racist mistresses, endorphins and more.
