Hello, I’m Airlie Wedemeyer, Founder and CEO of MyPeriodPal
In 2010 I took my first post as an international educator- over the years I taught in Africa, Asia and Europe, including two third-world countries where I thought I could do the most good.
The most sentimental of times was the two years I spent as a teacher at a Korean school in Pampanga, Philippines. That’s where I gave birth to my son.
After a few months, I was having menstrual cramps, but still supplementally breastfeeding so I couldn’t take pain medicine. A Korean colleague motioned to my ankle and said “press here” and when I did, all of my cramps and leg pain subsided immediately, I couldn’t believe it! What she had taught me utilized the uterus pressure point through reflexology, shown to her by her mother and her mother before that. It’s been used in Eastern medicine for over 5,000 years.
I couldn’t spend all day bent down pressing my ankle, so I constructed a device to keep the pressure applied and MyPeriodPal was born!
It is my mission to help women who suffer, just like you.
