Win a £50 Amazon Voucher with Canesten® #CanestenConversations


As a mother of two young girls, I'm pretty sure there's going to be more than a few frank conversations to be had in the future. Puberty, sex, intimate health; these are all topics covered by schools these days but there's nothing quite like being able to talk to your own mum about them, especially if you have questions you'd like answered, but don't want to ask them in front of your classmates!

We are a pretty tight knit family of three, and already have a close, honest and open relationship. I would love that to continue to grow as the girls get older. I'm lucky enough to have an amazing relationship with my own mum, and have always been able to talk to her about anything and everything, without ever feeling awkward or embarrassed. I can't imagine not feeling comfortable enough to ask her questions and I really, really hope it's the same for me with my daughters.

With that in mind, I've joined forces with Canesten® to help promote their #CanestenConversations campaign - to encourage parents to have open conversations about intimate health issues, like thrush, cystitis and BV, with their teenage daughters. They want to empower all women (not just teenagers) to feel confident and in control of their bodies - and this is something I support fully.

When the time is right I fully intend to speak openly and frankly with my girls about issues like these, and I don't ever want them to feel too embarrassed to come to me with their questions or their worries. As parents we all want our children to be happy and confident as they grow up, and I think being able to talk openly about topics like these is really important.

What do you wish you'd known about intimate health when you were younger?

As part of their campaign to raise awareness about intimate health, I've teamed up with Canesten® to offer one reader the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher.

  7. I wish I knew that it is very important to gain knowledge about intimate health and that it is a natural body change that happens to all girls so completely normal. I remember feeling embarrassed to talk about these things and feeling awkward.
