Meet the Creator

Tara Bruley, founder of Be Prepared, Period.

A site about periods, you say? Is that really necessary? After all, isn’t that what parents and health education classes are for? The truth is that nothing can be further from the truth. In fact, for girls and their parents, no matter how loving and involved, ‘growing up’ can be a difficult, confusing albeit beautiful phase of life - that is often misunderstood and laced with silent shame.

As an intuitive and determined mother, in the midst of puberty with my own daughter I decided to do something about it. Realizing the lack of quality, empowering period resources available at the time is what lead me to create the Be Prepared 1st Period Kit.

In doing so, I found that menstrual concerns and issues didn't just stop at puberty. I found that by empowering mothers to make healthy changes in their lives, they could in turn, set a good example for their daughters. I found that grown women still experienced embarrassment buying products, largely due to the stigma attached to menstruation. I found that ladies still struggled with irregular periods and leaks, long after puberty. Most of all, I found that period symptoms like extreme cramps, menstrual migraines, bloating, heavy flow, breast tenderness and mood swings interrupted their lives on a monthly basis.

Combining my desir to help others and my passion for living a more natural, healthier life, I set out to grow Be Prepared Period to be a resource that helped ladies throughout their menstrual journey, from puberty through menopause.
