World News: . []

BOSTON, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Penny Pack, an introductory period gift that helps parents and caregivers educate and build a girl’s confidence in a fun, engaging way, today announced nationwide availability at . Designed to teach girls about menstruation it happens, this personalized gift includes all the essentials a girl needs to feel confident and ready for her first period.

The Penny Pack selected (MHD) to launch its product in support of the vision and mission of MHD’s initiative: to create a world where women of all ages are empowered to manage their period with confidence and without shame; and to break the silence, raise awareness and change negative social norms surrounding menstruation around the world.

“The response we’ve received from our friends, family and focus groups about The Penny Pack has been overwhelming and certainly validates our thought that the period talk should be easier,” said Peter Thomas, co-founder of The Penny Pack. “What do a bunch of Dads know about periods? We know that talking about periods makes most everyone feel awkward and that our girls deserve better than what we could find readily available to help teach them about their first period. That’s how The Penny Pack was started – with four Dads on a mission to help our girls feel more confident and ready.”

The Penny Pack’s practical approach to period talk has five key elements to help start the discussion:

“The Penny Pack is a wonderful add-on to the Girlology classes we offer across the country. This special gift provides an easy conversation starter for parents who are interested in introducing the topic of puberty before learning more in person by attending our Girlology sessions,” said Dr. Trish Hutchison, MD, FAAP, and co-founder of Girlology. “We love that is was created by Dads who wanted their daughters to feel ready and confident when their first period arrived. The Penny Pack perfectly aligns with our mission: ‘.’ We are excited to be offering this age-appropriate resource to all of our attendees and know it will help conversations continue long after they’ve attended a Girlology event.” As young girls become more familiar with their cycle they often have additional questions or issues, and that’s where the Penny Pack App picks up the conversation. Each Penny Pack includes exclusive access to the Penny Pack App with informative, ongoing content for girls to help them remain comfortable with their menstrual knowledge. The App features quizzes to help master period knowledge, an extensive video library featuring Girlology puberty content, practical advice, and tips on topics like managing pain and more.

The Penny Pack can be purchased for $29.99. To learn more about Then Penny Pack, or to place an order, please visit the .
