Wild Carrot, or Daucus carota has been used for centuries throughout the world as a contraceptive ally. In this class, we will focus on learning about its historical use for birth control and recent explorations into this usage for the plant. We will discuss how it might work, dosage, safety, and contra-indications. This class is an opportunity for empowering discussion about reproductive autonomy.
