our stories are the reason we’re here
More than inspired.
Compelled by our own personal stories of duct taping heat pads to our stomachs, almost being kicked out of school and getting fired from our jobs – we founded somedays as a way to participate in our own liberation from chronic period pain and the stigma that comes with it.
Radical in every way.
Rooted in the concept of embodiement and trauma informed care we see a future where people feel empowered and inspired to transform their relationship to period pain.
The somedays founding team is a mix of queer, Black, disabled, gender diverse entrepreneurs who live with chronic pain and endometriosis. We are deeply passionate about and committed to the advancement of holistic and inclusive period care.
Our collective queer identity specifically, propels us to speak fiercely and openly about sexual, and gender related equity issues.
investing in better periods
Taking the time to find investors who believe in our vision for an inclusive and radical approach to period relief was important to us. Re-allocating funds to other grassroots organizers was equally important. We believe in a collaborative and community centered approach to business. We are currently heading into our second round of raising and sourcing of our community partnerships for 2022. Please reach out if you are interested in either of these opportunities.
the important stuff
Just like people, pain exists at the intersections of our personal experiences. Pain relief must make room for these intersections so that nobody gets left behind.
All of our topicals come in 100% compostable packaging made from renewable resources.
From our advocacy to our trauma informed approach to pain relief we’re pushing boundaries and fighting for a future we want to be a part of.
we’re all friends here
