Heavy Flow Podcast Episode 32 - MRKH Syndrome + What Makes a Woman? with Tasha Jade

Today I’m talking to Tasha Jade, founder of Daily Magic, about her experience with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, a condition that causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent. We discuss Tasha’s MRKH experience, gender identity and wax on “what makes a woman?”
