Motherhood has changed me in so many obvious ways. One change I made once I became a mama was learning about my body and my health. Today, I wish I had the knowledge in my early twenties about preventative measures for my health. Did you know that currently the age guidelines for the Pap test is being threatened to change, and many women will not be able to get tested until 25. Crazy, right? Especially because that’s a quarter of our life that we can go without being screened for cervical cancer. Cancer has affected many of my loved ones and this is why I urge you to educate yourself and advocate for access to the Pap test!
