Episode 34: Rewilding Contraception w/ Samantha Zipporah
My guest for this episode is Samantha Zipporah. Samantha is devoted to breaking the spells of oppression in reproductive & sexual health through education, healing & liberation. She has over 20 years of experience honing her craft as an educator, guide & caregiver tending to fertility, sex, & cycles spanning the full womb continuum. Sam’s work rises from an ancient lineage of midwives, witches, & wise women. A fierce champion of critical thinking skills, her knowledge is integrative & inclusive of modern medicine & science as well as traditional & ancient healing practices. Sam provides vital education for everyone from professionals to preteens in her books, courses, & live classes. Her online community The Fruit of Knowledge features monthly live workshops & an abundance of resources & dialogue for womb wisdom keepers & seekers.
