As a survivor, it’s common to feel out of alignment with your body but it is possible to find your way back… and that’s the purpose of this episode.

Today, we're discussing birth control. The discussion of female reproductive health is highly politicized and while we’re still fighting to have autonomy over access to healthcare for a myriad of reproductive needs… there’s another wellness issue at hand: ...miseducation or a total lack of education about the best options for our bodies. I’m specifically referring to birth control, how it works, and the tons of options that we can use naturally or through medication. Because while women’s bodies are constantly the topic of conversation, many women are sharing how they received very little education about the inner workings of their bodies outside of the “Don’t get pregnant” message pushed by parents, schools, and abstinence programs. This lack of education leads many women to not know how to advocate for their needs or have awareness of different options. And when you don’t know your body and you don’t know your options, you can’t make informed decisions about the right doctors or medications. So today, we’ll be joined by an amazing educator who will help us understand our options and why we need to do our homework. DISCLAIMER: While we’re discussing women’s reproductive health, we are not acting as your doctors. Always seek the advice and support of your physician or other qualified health provided for your particular situation. Now without further ado, I’m glad to share that I’m being joined by Cindy Luquin, a reproductive justice activist and fertility coach.

From a young age, the female sex is inundated with messages about our bodies. Commentary about body shape and desirability begins early. This scrutiny is particularly emphasized when a young girl's body begins to develop in puberty. This is intensified under the Madonna-Whore complex where women's values are determined by their desirability. This episode focuses on the need to shift from unhealthy societal messages and examine ways to begin a healthier relationship with our body. Take a listen...

In today's episode, we are joined by special guest, Seher, and we discuss who gets to be a woman of color in wellness spaces. Now the term WOC has risen in popularity in recent years, essentially replacing the term “minority or minority women.” Now, this term is not new, especially when it comes to activist spaces. However, the use of this term has extended beyond activist spaces and has become part of our everyday vernacular. We can see its use in magazine articles, marketing campaigns, and social media. But with that, there seems to be confusion about who this term is actually addressing. Is this term for Black women, Latinas, Asian women, Indigenous women? Who is the term for and who does it benefit? In fact, when I asked the questions “How do you use the term WOC and how do you believe others use it?” I was presented with varying responses. Take a listen and hear what women had to say... Get full transcript of episode at redefineenough.com/podcast Continue the conversation by becoming a patron.

So in the age of wellness and personal development, a lot of us are seeking information to grow and heal from emotional and physical pain, right? You're looking for someone to show you the way to transform and change your life. And as the demand for that grows, the number of self proclaimed healers seems to skyrocket. So the well intentioned and the flat out scammers all look alike on your Instagram and Twitter feeds. And with so many #healers, it's hard to know who's really in it for the right reasons. So today I want to discuss how the idea of being someone's healer can be problematic, but also cover the range of everything from an unaddressed savior complex to deliberately exploiting people's vulnerability to also recognizing the need for us to take responsibility in our own healing process. And I hope you're ready for that part of it too. So this isn't a "call out" episode but more of a "call in" for all of us.

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Affirm is rejoined by veteran guest host Tashira Halyard. Tashira originally joined AFFIRM during episode 2, “Self Care: Soul work for Survival” and now returns to share her story of breast cancer. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2017, Tashira has undergone chemo and radiation. She can now say that she is in remission but is far too aware that women of color are dying from the disease. While women of color have lower incidences of cancer compared to white women, Black women in particular have higher rates of mortality (death) and she’s sharing her story in hopes of motivating others to self-check and improve early detection. For more information about breast cancer specific to women of color, download the resource guide for women of color created by the Minority Health Resource Center.
