Every Wednesday on the Hippie Haven podcast, learn how to live harmoniously with yourself, others & the planet. We talk about all things hippie, including eating vegan, reducing your trash, starting an ethical business, eco-activism, gardening, beekeeping, tiny house living, and so much more.
Today's guest is Robin LaCross, a holistic health practitioner who specializes in women’s reproductive health. She has been teaching natural birth control methods for over 25 years, and she is passionate about making sure every young woman grows up knowing and understanding her body. Robin is on a mission to reduce unintended pregnancies and the spread of STDs in the world by changing the way mothers talk to their children about puberty + sex. Today, Callee + Robin are talking about natural birth control, as a way for you to take control of your own reproductive health, to save money, and to make less waste. Whether you already have kids, don't ever want to have kids, or are currently trying to have kids, there's something for everyone in this episode, men included. And if you, like Callee + Robin, have known since a young age that being a mother isn't part of your life plan, definitely stay tuned near the end of this episode where they talk about tubal ligation, how difficult it is to find a doctor who respects your decision, and what they've both done to prevent unintended pregnancy.

The Hippie Haven Podcast is hosted by Callee - a zero waste activist & business owner. Formerly a translator for the US Navy, Callee was honorably discharged as a conscientious objector in 2017 following an episode of severe depression & alcoholism fueled by not living in alignment with her core values. That same year, at age 23, she started Bestowed Essentials, a handmade line of eco-friendly beauty & home products that are now stocked in over 100 stores around the US & Canada. Callee began hosting this free podcast in August 2018, as well as speaking at events and teaching educational workshops across the country, as part of her life mission to arm you with the knowledge & tools you need to spark positive change in your community. In December 2019, she opened The Hippie Haven in Rapid City, South Dakota - a zero waste retail store & community space with a little free library - the first of its kind in the state. She’ll be opening a second Hippie Haven in Salem, Oregon in Feb 2021.
