And you still do.
That's why I've created this course for you.
So that you can identify your personal patterns and superpowers, and plan your month to perform at your best.
I've been a women's health practitioner and birth doula for over ten years. What lights me up is helping women understand their menstrual cycles so that they aren't held back by "women's troubles".
I’m going to give you an eye-opening menstrual blueprint, so that instead of getting hit by the same old issues month after month, you can get your cycle working for you.
Wouldn't that be great?

"I adore Maisie and all she does. She brings a deep intuition as well as incredible practical wisdom to all her work around and periods and birth. Her course has changed the way I view my cycle and has helped me overcome severe pain as well as tune in to the emotional side (read helped me stop being such a bitch with PMS). I am learning to use my cycle as a guide for how I work and plan my life. It’s empowering, grouding and brilliant. I wish I’d been taught this as a 15 year old. That’s why this work is so important, in a world designed by men it’s crucial our young women and young men are in tune talking freely about all this stuff." - Anna Jones, Cook and Author.
"The ultimate investment in your womanhood, my time with Maisie taught me how to respect my womb, my body and my emotions. For that time of the month when in one moment you feel like your winning, to completely losing it all the next. She helped me understand that I was not alone in these emotions, and that sometimes being a woman can be sh*t and amazing at the same time. I left feeling equipped with knowledge both factual and spiritual, ready to tackle whatever my womb brought my way." - Rose Ray, House of Plants.
“I did this course a few years ago, having spent a couple of days a month for years lying shaking on the floor in public toilets, fainting in shops and generally hating my womb for punishing me with such pain. Maisie is a game changer for getting this shit sorted, working with the joys of being a womb-owner, loving life and embracing how ace it is to be a woman. Can’t recommend enough!” - Amy Redmond, Sink the Pink & Margate Arts Club.
“If I'd been reading Maisie’s words in a magazine back when I was 13, I would have understood what my body was going through, and what I could be doing to help myself! Maisie’s knowledge is also self-experience, what greater teacher could there be. I cannot recommend this course enough, and wish my 13 year old self had been reading those words and preaching them loud and proud! Thank you Maisie!” - Cat Proudfoot, Proudfoot Pilates.

I'd love to take things further with you...
So I've made space for 10 private sessions with me in January (or a later date if you prefer). We'll focus on whatever the hell you wan't, and you'll benefit from the decade of training and experience I have of doing this work.
Our session together will last an hour and take place over Skype or Zoom.

It will be challenging. It will be emotional. It will be bloody awesome.
I used to get hit hard by my periods. Hard.
I have had to lie down in public places because I couldn’t stand up or face trying to get home. People looked at me like I was a drug addict.
I have regularly woken up in pain and run scorching hot baths at 2am whilst impatiently waiting for painkillers to kick in.
I have felt like my coccyx and hips were about to snap open with pressure.
I have burned my skin to the point of causing blisters, THREE MONTHS IN A ROW, because the extreme heat of a hot water bottle was all that was helping to mitigate the pain, and the pain was so bad that I had no awareness that I was also in pain from the hot water bottle.
There have been times when I have been close to calling 999 (911 for you yanks) and begging for morphine.
I have spent years healing that pain.
Casually at first, and then with a fierce commitment.
Acupuncture, menstrual cycle awareness, nutrition, divorce, osteopathy, yoga, Chinese herbs, Western herbs, orgasms, massage, reflexology, homeopathy, CBT, flower remedies, psychotherapy, “hands on” healing … I have tried them all. I have begged for drugs, in my head and out loud. I have prayed to any and all of the gods available. I have taken copious amounts of painkillers and smoked small amounts of weed, and let me tell you, all hail the power of painkillers, be they natural or pharmaceutical. I don’t know what I would have done without them.
And for the last four years, period pain hasn't bothered me.
My journey to sort out my periods was how I got serious about this work.
I was inspired by the wise women who treated me and the therapies they used, and went on to complete a BSc in Acupuncture, qualified in the Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT®). Then, being the geek that I am, I apprenticed with several world leaders in the growing field of menstruality, exploring the impact of nutrition and lifestyle on our cycles, and learning about the psychological and spiritual aspect of them.
Bit by bit, my personal and professional life became increasingly focused on menstrual health. As I became more in tune with my own rhythms and needs, and began applying all I'd learnt with my clients, I realised just how needed this information was. Clients made tiny changes and were amazed at how different they felt.
Then, in addition to working with women one on one, I started running menstrual health workshops.
And that's where things got interesting. That's when the work got a lot bigger, because there's something hugely powerful about sitting with a group of women and exploring our cycles together.
Attendees cried. I cried. We got angry that nobody had told us this crucial wisdom when we were fourteen or twenty. Or thirty or forty. And in some cases fifty. There were women who grieved that they had gone through menopause and would not bleed again with this knowledge to guide them, but who felt great relief at finally getting to know just what the hell was going on with them for all of their menstruating years, and delight that they could use the lunar cycle instead.
We felt sad that nobody had told our mothers either, and so they didn't know what to tell us. We discovered the common themes that bind us together as menstruators. That their stories are your stories too.
Gradually, more and women started reaching out to me, saying that they'd love to come to a workshop but that they lived in another country and couldn't make it. Or that their work and family commitments meant it would be hard to get away for the day. Everybody was asking if there was another way to work with me.
That's why I decided to create an online version.
And here it is. Same content, different delivery.
I'm all fired up about sharing it with you because this knowledge changes lives. And sometimes it even saves them.
I'd love to share it with you. Are you in?
