Sara can come to your school and deliver key presentations to the students live. The program can be delivered in one half day (3 hours) or it can be delivered over 3 separate sessions. A completely online option is also available for schools if this is preferred.

 

The presentations are engaging, inspiring, interactive and are designed to completely re-shape and flip the well-worn narrative about menstruation and the female body. 

New research shows the stigma around menstrual health in teenage girls is preventing some young Australians from going to school.

 

A survey of 659 menstruating students aged 10-18 years old has found one in five are too embarrassed to go to school when they have their period.

A 2017 survey found that 1 in 7 girls and young women in the UK didn’t know what was happening when they got their first period. 1 in 4 stated that they felt unprepared for the beginning of menstruation.

Evidence informed – all our programs are fully aligned with the Australian Curriculum - Health & Physical Education (HPE) and Science Curriculum, and with the Australian Well-being Framework. Programs are developed in collaboration with registered teachers and education experts. We provide pre and post program data, so you can gauge the impact of the program that delivers foundational life-skills for girls.

  • Periods are seen as an inconvenience

  • Girls are often embarrassed and humiliated when it comes to periods

  • Girls feel disempowered and lack self-worth affecting their mental health

  • Rising mental health issues, can be addressed with healthy body awareness and body appreciation, building a sense of self-worth

About Sara Harris

BHSc, Grad Dip Couns, MWomHMed, CertIV TAE

Sara is the founder of Follow your Flow and Cycle Wise Education. Her study and work in the area of women’s health spans across two decades. She has worked in private practice along with running programs, courses and events to support girls and women reignite their relationship with themselves.

With a Masters in Women’s Health Medicine and 4 years working in wellbeing at a school in Melbourne, she has now packaged her expertise and experience for teens to access. The foundation upon which Sara works is with the understanding that all girls and women are inherently sacred…a term that we shouldn’t be afraid to use and is very much present in our history when it comes to truly understanding women. 

 

A girl’s transition into womanhood is indeed sacred yet we are bombarded with everything that is in complete opposition to this.

Sara is engaging, real and inspiring as she is a living example of all that she shares whilst calling to account the lies that have been embedded in society and in the narrative about periods, that we have accepted for far too long.

Qualified. Experienced. Engaging. Relatable. Inspiring.

Why be cycle wise?

5.png

Being Cycle Wise should be the foundation of every girl’s education when it comes to understanding their health and wellbeing. However, we still live in a world where periods are considered a nuisance and we wish them away at any given opportunity. The Cycle Wise Teens program is revolutionising this narrative, empowering girls to reclaim their body and its magnificent intelligence.

About the program

Rather than feeling at the mercy of their menstrual cycle and all that may come with it, this program encourages girls to recognise that they are in control. We look at the impact that choices in lifestyle, stress and ways of thinking has on the body as well as practical ways girls can support themselves.
