Women's worlds - environmental effects on parenting, reproduction and health

"Breastfeeding, periods, and menopause. Ouch, eurgh and AARGH, right? We internalise and make private these issues and surround them in guilt, self-blame, pressure and shame – but that’s not fair – our bodily experiences are environmentally influenced – and what our bodies do or don’t do (and when and how they do it) isn’t always our fault."

Dr Laura J Brown discusses her research into environmental links with breastfeeding in the UK, and the timing of menarche and menopause in low and middle income countries for the FemQuant blog series.
