Today’s episode covers a topic that is hardly ever talked about in the mainstream: miscarriage and abortion and how they affect a person’s physical health and hormones as well as their emotional health.
I’m joined by Samantha Zipporah, a fertility, sex, and cycle educator, author, and activist with over 20 years of experience. Samantha is devoted to breaking the spells of oppression in reproductive and sexual health through collective healing, liberation, and education. A former birth doula, she provides radical love for navigating the womb continuum and reclaiming ancestral wisdom.
In this episode, we talk about how our culture disempowers people who menstruate, the over-medicalization of processes of the womb, putting pregnancy termination into context, the risks associated with pregnancy release, the psycho-spiritual aspects of miscarriages and abortions, and so much more!

A Nutrisense CGM is an incredible way to monitor your blood sugar levels in real-time and their app helps you see exactly how your diet and lifestyle specifically affect your blood sugar. I tried a Nutrisense CGM this past summer and it was a game-changer. It was amazing to see how my meals and specific foods were affecting me positively or negatively. There was a whole lot of experimentation while using it to see what worked best for me and some foods were real shockers. Now you can get a Nutrisense CGM and take $25 off your first month of service. This includes two CGMs to be used for two weeks each, the app, and a month of free dietitian support. That support is invaluable and the best part of the service.
