Women’s Sexual Health + Tackling Taboos with Estrella Jaramillo

Episode Description

I recently met Estrella Jaramillo at a conference for health and technology companies and was immediately taken by her energy and presence.
Estrella has been focusing for the last several years on building and creating tools and services to support women to deal with the anxiety and stress related to their bodies, sexuality and gender equity. Because we’ve been focusing on sexual health in March and will shift our focus to how we view, treat and take care of our bodies in April, this is a perfect bridge between both conversations.
Please join us for a powerful conversation where Estrella and I discuss women’s sexual health, the pelvic floor, anxiety, body image and tackling taboos on Episode 110 of Ignite Intimacy!
