Give Birth Like a Feminist

with podcast guest

Milli Hill


Milli Hill is a writer and freelance journalist with a passion for women’s rights in childbirth and throughout their reproductive lives. She is a tireless advocate for women’s choices, and for the notion that birth can be positive in any setting, from home to the operating theater. Milli is also the author of three books, The Positive Birth Book, Give Birth like a Feminist, and My Period (for preteens), which have all topped the Amazon charts.

In this episode, we talk about how cultural messaging disconnects us from our bodies, the need to reframe the common notion that childbirth has to be traumatic, why you should have a birth plan, how Milli centers women in her advocacy, and so much more. We also talk about a topic I’ve never brought up on the podcast and the highly controversial event that happened to Milli last year. Enjoy the episode!

Hormone balance is essential for healthy, regular periods, and getting enough nourishment is essential to hormone balance. That’s why I love Agni and their food-based approach to supporting period health.
