OP Note pt. 2: I'm going to try to do frequent informational posts. As a start, the posts are going to be centered around women's health and psychological health, but I'm willing to include other topics upon request. Mostly these posts will serve the purpose of educating the ignorant and helping those who may need information find a starting point in their search. Feedback and topic suggestions are most definitely welcome.
Future planned topics include: Maternal/Preventative Health Care & Planned Parenthood, Bullying Awareness and Prevention, Community Service for Winter/Holidays (I'll do my best to include charities and activities in other countries!), Birth Control Megapost, Natural Hair Care, etc.
