Can Cloth Menstrual Pads Cause Infections?

‘There is an invisible taboo about menstruation and menstrual blood that shows up in subtle ways.
One of those is that our blood is dirty.’

Can cloth menstrual pads cause infections?

Rachael Crow and I address this question and talk about;

  • possible reasons you might feel a bit itchy with some pads
  • menstrual taboo and how it shows up in subtle ways
  • menstrual cups
  • menstrual blood
  • popping invisible taboos of negative menstrual conditioning

The action step, or rather challenge from this episode is to touch your menstrual blood
and let us know what happens in The Sacred Womb Private Facebook Group.

About Rachael Crow

I am a mother of 4 gorgeous children, and live with my 2 youngest in the Wilds of West Wales where I have been on a 5 year pilgrimage journey along side my ancestors, the crows and the land into peri- menopause. I’m a sensitive and have found peace, stillness and power through listening to my womb and following my cycle, the ebb and flow of moon and the stars and connecting to our Mother Earth.

My passion lies in Empowering Women through connection to the Women’s Mysteries, supporting women to trust their inner wisdom, especially as they come to the major stages in life; girls first menstruation or Menarche, meeting Motherhood at the Birth Altar, Parenting, Menopause.

I believe women deeply appreciate learning about alternative and positive ways to think about their bodies!
