“The shame and criticism of our ever-changing bodies is something I have dealt with and witnessed for a long time,” she said. “I so desperately want women to love themselves and be relentless when fighting for their own health in a system that typically doesn’t believe them.”

“I want women to know that it is abnormal to have extremely painful periods and to find someone with experience in diagnosing and operating on endometriosis… I want women who vomit horribly in their second and third trimesters to (know that) they may have “hyperemesis gravidarum like the one I had. I want women to value feeling strong, healthy and comfortable in their own skin.”
