Being pregnant can be uncomfortable, but at least you don't get your period right?

After you've had children your periods can change, especially in your late 30s and 40s.

Lara Briden is a naturopath and author of Period Repair Manual: Every Woman's Guide to Better Periods.

She explains perimenopause, how having children impacts menstrual cycles, and what women can do to feel their best when their body is changing.

You can read the first two chapters of Lara's book on her website, and to purchase the full book head to any good book seller or online retailer.

Make sure you never miss out on expert advice and stories from real parents by subscribing to Kinderling ConversationAvailable in iTunesSpotifyStitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
