It can be bloody hard living in a body that bleeds once a month. It's time we started speaking up about our menstrual cycles. Now in her new book, everyone's friendly neighbourhood period coach, Claire Baker, is here to start the conversation!



Taking you through her 50 best pieces of advice, Claire explains the ‘four seasons’ of our menstrual cycle and how they vary hormonally to affect everything from mood, motivation and memory, to energy levels, confidence, focus and stress. You’ll learn how to chart your cycle to identify your unique superpowers in each hormonal phase, the tools you need to work with your body rather than pushing against it, and that you’re not crazy: it’s completely natural to feel different from week-to-week. 

Illustrated throughout, 50 Things You Need to Know About Periods is packed with straightforward science, cycle-syncing suggestions and relatable real life advice that encourages you to experiment with a whole new way of living and bleeding. This simple and empowering book is the perfect gift to remind someone you love - or yourself - to join the menstruation conversation, see 'the curse' as the superpower it can be and #AdoreYourCycle.
