Welcome to Your Period by Yum Stynes ✨
A frank, funny, age-appropriate guide for pre-teens about getting your period, from Dr Melissa Kang (a former Dolly Doctor) and Yumi Stynes (all-round excellent woman).
Getting your period for the first time can be mortifying, weird and messy – and asking questions about it can feel even worse.
But it doesn’t have to be like that!
This little book is packed with honest advice on all the things you need to know: from what cramps feel like to whether you can feel it coming out, to what you should do if your pad leaks onto your clothes.
Welcome To Your Period includes case studies, first-person accounts and questions from real teens (and answers from real experts – us!) so you can manage your period like a boss.
Winner of the 2020 ABIA Book of the Year for Older Children. Longlisted for the 2020 ABDA Best Designed Children's Non-Fiction.
