You know when you just find the right menstrual product for you? None of them you really love, but you find one that is just comfortable enough not to drive you crazy. That was me a year ago with Always and Tampax. One day when I had run out of my favorite but still horribly uncomfortable pads, I got lazy and decided to steal some pads from my sister.
It was horrible and I was frustrated. I thought why can’t I just wear something as comfortable as my underwear? I had heard about cloth pads from my sister in passing one time so I decided to google ‘cloth pads, Vancouver’ and Lunapads was first in the list of search results. I think I spent around 6 hours just absorbing all of the information on the site: the blog, the testimonials, the different patterns, the instructional videos, the health benefits and more. I was sold, not just on the pads and the DivaCup but on everything and anything that Lunapads stands for, promotes and supports.
24 hours later, I got my package in the mail and tested them out. Not only did I like the products for myself, but I had this urge to help other women have the period revelation I had. Through Lunapads’ Ambassadors program, I’ve been able to support the women in my life to better appreciate their periods. Now I’ve had the opportunity to expand with Lunapads by coaching and assisting the other Ambassadors, as well as organizing LunaCircles (gatherings to explore connections to fertility and menstruation) here at Lunapads!
