EmPOWERing Growing Girls

A class to prepare preteen girls for the physical and emotional changes of adolescence.

Empowering Growing Girls is a class designed to help prepare young girls (ages 9-12) for the changes of adolescence including physical changes in their body and emotional changes they may be experiencing.

Experienced providers from our Obstetrics and Gynecology team will help guide a comfortable discussion between the participants and their confidants, and are happy to answer any questions during the class. The topics covered in this class will include changes to expect during puberty and how to handle those changes. We will also discuss their first period with an introduction to the forms of protection for the menstrual cycle. Before participants leave, there will be an opportunity for anonymous question and answer with our clinic's Nurse Practitioners.
