Period Power is a profound but practical blueprint for aligning daily life with the menstrual cycle, to give all menstruators a no-nonsense explanation of what the hell happens to us every month and how we can use each phase to its full advantage.


Ninety per cent of people who have periods experience symptoms of PMS, a syndrome which features a wide range of signs and symptoms, and yet there's an enduring lack of understanding about what it actually is and a disappointingly meagre range of treatment options.


So many of us have a Jekyll and Hyde experience of our lives; we feel on top of the world, capable, confident and sexy for part of each month, then find ourselves in a state of physical and emotional discomfort and fatigue, wanting nothing more than to collapse on the sofa in front of Netflix.


But what if instead of just trying to plan for our dark days, we were equipped with ways to improve them?


What if our desire to improve ourselves could be combined with our need to know just what our womb and ovaries are getting up to every month?Not to mention how to take advantage of the natural superpowers that sit in each phase of our cycle so that we can plan our month to perform at our best.


Maisie Hill is uniquely placed, as an acupuncturist, women's health practitioner and doula, to explain just how we can achieve this as well as focusing on particular milestones that require an altered approach, such as coming off hormonal birth control, infertility, pregnancy, motherhood and the perimenopausal years.


Using what Hill calls 'The Cycle Strategy' - a secret weapon when it comes to improving our relationships, career and health - Hill will give us all the information we need to make sense of our cycles as well as accessible and practical suggestions through which we can improve our physical symptoms and stop berating ourselves because of the way we evolve through each menstrual month.

    This is information we should all know and it’s good to have something to go back to that’s lays it out so clearly and accurately!

    This book informed me and gave me true knowledge and power to work with instead of against my body. Had so much information and I don’t know how many times I found myself thinking or saying “ I wish I would have known this is my early twenties” here I am hitting 40 and finally learning how my body works. Who knew the clitoris was so large? Wtf? I used the tracking cycle suggestion and it was truly such a game changer for me. Love this book. Recommended to all the kar in my life with a cycle.

    I love this book! It's easy to understand and Maisie has organized it in a way where the information isn't overwhelming. She also writes in a conversational tone so it's fun to read with her personal input and way of speaking. I have IBS so I loved that the book also talks about food and diet and how your diet impacts your cycle. I also have bad cramps, PMS, mood swings, etc. and this book really helped me be kinder to myself on my off days. TRACK YOUR CYCLE :) You'll learn a lot about your body and mind. I actually ended up going off of my birth control after reading this book and I'm happy I did.

    This book changed my life. Everyone needs to read it. I can’t stress it enough. I never knew any of this and I finally feel in control of my body, empowered, aware of my seasons. Even my boyfriend is reading it next to understand my hormones better too.

    One of the best books of all time!! This should be taught in school!
