Heavy Flow is a feminist, body positive podcast about periods, reproductive health and health and wellness topics. Each week host Amanda Laird sits down with a guest to have casual, candid conversations about the things we’re not supposed to talk about. While we mostly talk about periods, we’ve also discussed fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, birth control, sexuality, mental health, miscarriage, abortion and gender. We are not truly empowered until we all understand the bodies we live in.
