When it comes to talking with kids about sex, gender identity, and genital health, parents often find themselves struggling to say the right thing. On this episode, Miriam the Midwife talks with Dr. Kerry Schaefer, MD from Healthy Living Family Medicine (now Healthy Living Community) about how to broach these topics with your kids, age-appropriate ways to educate your kids about their bodies, helping your kids understand their gender identity, and finding the words to use when you find yourself talking about topics which make you blush. She tackles your questions about consent, genital hygiene, body positivity, giving "the talk" and more!
