Healing Hormones Podcast

Quitting Birth Control Without Fear | with Rebecca Stow

HH 22 - Rebecca Stow_@ IG Wide Art.jpg

Rebecca Stow is a client of mine, and when she asked to share her hormonal birth control story, I was like “YES, this is a story that women need to hear!”

Rebecca is a certified holistic health coach like me and she knows firsthand what it feels like to struggle with perfectionism. She’s passionate about helping women develop a strong sense of self so that they can navigate every area of their lives — from food, to relationships, to career, to movement — like a boss. She does this by helping you build trust in yourself and your body so that you can learn to intentionally live, eat, and move in ways that are supportive to you.

Rebecca had such an incredible transformation when she got off birth control. She was on the pill for 6 years. The symptoms she had before taking them were debilitating, so when she decided she wanted to quit taking birth control to connect more with her body, there was fear that those symptoms would come back. Through our work together, she’s learned that getting off of birth control doesn’t have to be scary, and in fact, it is going to make you feel a whole lot better!
