Pretty Periods brought together your favorite known and unknown Black and minority owned entities, in support of normalizing positive attitudes around Menstrual Maturity, and sexual and reproductive health for Black women and women of color. We started with a subscription box, but quickly realized we needed to expand into a global women's health brand. So our efforts switched from a product based business to a services based business with products on side.
The onset of one's menstrual cycle, also known as Menarche, is often viewed as the catalyst that thrust you into "womanhood". We believe that menstruation doesn't make you a woman just yet, however it makes you mature in many areas.
We recognize that during onset, many things are said, and other things are left to interpret and understand on your own, so we are here to fill in the gaps.
We understand that there are many vantage points to how we view this critical time in one's life, for some it's a badge of honor, for others it may be a reminder of body betrayal. Pretty Periods strives to be inclusive of all people, whether you are pretty feminine, or pretty masculine, or somewhere in between, we have something for you.
We often hear, "there is nothing pretty about cramps, bloating, mood swings, change in appetite, heavy menstrual flow and or discomfort", so here we are to the rescue. Whether you are feeling pretty hot, or pretty cold, or pretty sad, or pretty bold... we pretty much have you covered.
No, our curated boxes won't change the things mentioned above, but they are guaranteed to lift and lighten your mood. In one box, you receive menstrual and hygiene products, apparel, snacks, and more. All from Black and or minority owned, founded, and or supported entities.
Did we mention most of our products are organic and free of harmful chemicals that wreak havoc on our reproductive system, and are supplied by Black owned entities?! If we did, we had to mention it again lol.
Last but not least, Period Poverty is real. Here at Pretty Periods, we do our part to ensure everyone has access to their basic needs when menstruating. If you or someone you know are in need of menstrual and hygiene products, we will gladly ship them at no cost. Please message us today, and the necessities will be on their way.
Here at Pretty Periods, we are shaping a new narrative around sexual health and reproductive justice, including menstrual maturity. We believe no one should have to choose between their next meal and menstrual care products, or worry about dying as they are in the midst of giving birth.
