When will I get boobs?
Does wearing a tampon hurt?
What’s the deal with menstrual cups?
Seriously, when will I get boobs?

HelloFlo founder Naama Bloom’s mission is to create informed, empowered young women who are unafraid to ask questions and make the best choices for themselves and their bodies. A celebration of women’s bodies and all the confusing, uncomfortable, silly, transformative, and powerful changes that occur during puberty.
