Learn From Her, Online Video Education Platform, Launches to Address Taboo Health Topics for Women

For Women, by Women E-Learning Platform Provides Women's and Family Health Classes Taught by Best-in-Class Medical Professionals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 7, 2016) - Learn From Her, an online, video education platform created for women to learn directly from female medical professionals about women's and family health topics, proudly launched today. Founded by Naama Bloom and Karen Cahn, the video-based health courses provide a private learning experience around taboo health concerns -- most classes are the cost of copay -- and strives to help normalize the health and wellness conversation.

Learn From Her partners with experienced and credentialed female medical professionals to create multi-media courses that can be watched anytime, anywhere, on any device, at one's own pace. The classes offer sound medical data, perspective, and context in a shame-free and judgment-free, private environment, and provide them with the tools to make informed health and parenting decisions.

"We live in a world of information overload where the default is to turn to Dr. Google; finding trusted health information is just plain difficult," said Naama Bloom, co-founder of Learn From Her and founder & CEO of HelloFlo, a community devoted to promoting health and empowerment for women and girls. "Learn From Her provides women with health and parenting knowledge from experienced female medical professionals. Our students get the benefit of engaging online classes, taught by experts, who make it a point to speak like real humans. This is frank, tell-it-like-it-is information delivered without judgement."

"Learn From Her provides easy-to-understand information that you can watch anywhere -- in the comfort of your own home or on the train to work," said Karen Cahn, co-founder of Learn From Her and Founder & CEO of VProud, a video blogging platform for women. "Women need a private space to really focus in and learn about the difficult health topics that plague us on the daily, like why we aren't enjoying sex anymore, recognizing the signs of an eating disorder, learning how to read a food label, understanding why our 7 year-old is still having meltdowns, and everything in between."

Through Learn From Her, women can better educate themselves with vetted information, to lead more healthful lives. Current course offerings include:

  • Control Your Leaking - Are you leaking urine when you laugh or sneeze? Is sex more painful than it used to be? Do you wonder if you're doing your kegels right? If this sounds like you, then you need to get in touch with your Pelvic Floor. Join Missy Lavender and Dr. Sandy Hilton as they teach you everything you need to know about the Pelvic Pyramid.
  • Dealing with Eating Disorders - Is your child out of control when it comes to food? Are you worried that he or she might have an eating disorder, but aren't sure where to start? Join Dr. Judith Brisman as she discusses the different kinds of eating disorders, what signs to look for, and how you can help.
  • Decoding Your Child's Behavior - Your job as a parent is to be your child's first teacher, but sometimes the student, aka your child, is unwilling. You need to understand your child's temperament, what's driving your child's behavior, and also understand your own parenting style to learn how to parent effectively. Let Dr. Sandra Mann, a parent educator and family therapist in New York City for more than 30 years, help you.
  • Fertility for Beginners - Whether you're actively trying to conceive or want to get smart about your fertility, this class is a must. Join Margaret Sikowitz, an acupuncturist and herbalist who has worked with thousands of women on their fertility journey, will teach you how to read the cues your body is sending, how to know when you need medical intervention, and what that intervention may entail.
  • Managing Your Family's Sugar - There's a war on sugar, but do you really need to cut sugar out of your diet to be healthy? Do you know how to read a food label correctly? Most of us don't. Join Shari Boockvar, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, as she explains why everyone is so obsessed with sugar and carbs, and how you can understand what is OK to eat to maintain a healthy diet.
  • Parenting Through Puberty - Puberty has changed since you went through it. It starts earlier, lasts longer, and has been forever altered as a result of the digital age. Join Dr. Cara Natterson as she doles out sound parenting advice and wisdom from her years as a practicing pediatrician, adolescent educator, and parent. Learn the signs of puberty, how the adolescent brain develops, all about the different hormones in our bodies, and how to help your child have good self-esteem during a pretty rough time.
  • Understanding Sexual Satisfaction - Sex is great. Or at least it should be. But sadly that isn't always the case. Some studies estimate that 40% of women suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction. Whether it's a decreased libido or an inability to get aroused, help is out there. Join Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB/GYN, as she shares common causes of sexual dysfunction, and treatments and cures. In addition to the science, she shares practical tips to help you enjoy sex again.

Learn From Her will be adding new courses each month. For more information and to check out the latest course offerings, visit www.learnfromher.com.
