Balancing Chaos

Our Podcasts, Ourselves

November 3, 2017

This week we have our first guest, Leah, a women's healthcare provider who talks about contraception, sex education, and abortion - and about how the terms "pro-life" and "pro-choice" aren't exactly what they seem.

Discussed in this episode:

Our Bodies, Ourselves (this is the new edition, but this link goes to the cover I remember so well from childhood - I was right about the signs! - Gretchen 

Taking Charge of Your Fertility

Robie Harris series of sexuality education books:

It's Not the Stork! Ages 4+

It's So Amazing! Ages 7+

It's Perfectly Normal Ages 10+

(also, not mentioned but worth noting - if you have daughters the American Girl series is great - The Care and Keeping of You 1 is for younger girls, and The Care and Keeping of You 2 is the next step for girls 10+.)
