About The Happy Uterus
When I was looking for different ways to manage my symptoms, I was frustrated with products that were marketed for 'lower back pain' but in small letters 'could be used for period pain'.
All of The Happy Uterus products have period pain and associated symptoms at the forefront! There's nothing secretive about what types of pains we are trying to relieve.
Many people who are diagnosed with invisible illnesses know all too well how isolating it can be. This is why I make the products with bright colours and patterns. They are made to be shown off and to start a conversation.
All of my products are based on what I needed as someone with endometriosis. I use them all, almost daily. I wanted to make my favourite products available to others.
My ultimate aim for The Happy Uterus is to create a community that thrives on positivity and empowerment.
My two absolute favourite things about The Happy Uterus are:
The giggle or the smile people have when they hear or see the name.
The invaluable conversations and relationships I have made with people in this community.

About the products
All of our wheat bags have been designed and handmade by Nat in Canberra. They are designed for people who experience period and/or pelvic pain and other associated pain and symptoms.
They are filled with locally sourced, Australian grown biodynamic wheat.
$2 from every sale is donated to Share the Dignity to support their important work in our community.
Share the Dignity is a women's charity in Australia, that works to make a real difference in the lives of those experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or doing it tough. They distribute period products to women, girls, and anyone who menstruates who needs support.
Endometriosis is a common disease in which the tissue that is similar to the lining of the womb grows outside it in other parts of the body. Many people are unaware that one in nine people who are assigned female at birth, suffer with endometriosis at some point in their life with the disease often starting in teenagers.
Symptoms are variable and this may contribute to the 7 to 12 year delay in diagnosis.
Endometriosis is reported to cost Australian society $9.7 billion annually with two thirds of these costs attributed to loss in productivity with the remainder, approximately $2.5 billion being direct healthcare costs. Comparatively, diabetes costs about $1 billion annually in direct healthcare costs.
