#18 - "Embracing Me" | April Hernandez Castillo
Show Notes

The Women's Health, Wisdom, and... WINE! podcast is a weekly conversation with practitioners, providers, patients & healers about complex reproductive medicine & women's health challenges, the value of an integrative approach to these challenges, many of the women's health topics you're already thinking about (and uncomfortable talking about), and  my personal favorite... WINE!

September 15th – October 15 
is Hispanic Heritage month and the theme for 2021, Esperanza: A Celebration of Heritage and Hope invites us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage and to reflect on how great our collective tomorrows can be when we embrace our resilience and hope while encouraging us to reflect on all the contributions Latinos have made in the past and will continue to make in the future. We will be taking several weeks to amplify the voices and the presence of the Latina powerhouses in our community.

About our guest:

However, as a survivor of intimate partner violence, April, determined to make a difference, educates her audiences about the power of their voices, the effects of abuse, and understanding the components of a healthy relationship.
