How I Learned To Love My Period

How I Learned To Love My Period

My journey to accepting my period began when I started working at hannahpad. I learnt so much about the female reproductive system and using all natural products as to not interfere with my hormonal balance and health. I found it fascinating, and I still do to this day. I believe the first step is always knowledge, knowing why our body goes through this transformative process each month is paramount in feeling empowered towards your physical self.

This is why it’s crucial to continue bringing awareness to help fund further research and improve survival rates which is sitting at 45% for 5 year survival in recent times [2]. This number we believe can and must improve so it’s time to ovary-act! Here are some things you need to know about the disease.

The Toxin Free Period Choice: hannahpad

The Toxin Free Period Choice: hannahpad

Legally in Australia, manufacturing companies of period products such as tampons and pads are not required to list all the ingredients contained in their products. This makes it difficult to choose products when companies aren’t transparent. Which is why we created hannahpad, a non-toxic period product you don’t have to compromise your health for.

What is really in disposable pads?

What is really in disposable pads?

A year ago I had never even thought about the fact that there could be toxins in disposable pads and tampons. Why would there be? I just assumed that the people making them had my best interest at heart, how very naive of me. One of the things that astounded me was the fact that one pad is estimated to have the same amount of plastic as 4 plastic bags.
