In an effort to shine a light on the outdated terminology that women experience throughout fertility and motherhood, peanut-app started a viral campaign called the #RenamingRevolution.
Thousands of you came forward to share the hurtful terms you’ve experienced first-hand, like incompetent cervix, geriatric pregnancy, and spontaneous abortion (yes, these words were still being used in 2021!).
It was clear to us that something needed to change. So today, we’re announcing the launch of the #RenamingRevolution Glossary.
