puts my mind at ease

I love the luna app! It is a great space for my daughter to learn about puberty and her menstrual cycle and ask any questions she may be a bit embarrassed to ask me. The Drs and experts that luna has fact-checking these questions puts my mind at ease, knowing she is getting correct and factual information

Sarah, parent of pre-teen aged 12 

authentic, trustworthy

My daughter loves being part of the luna community and I personally think the app is great.


There are times when regardless of how close we are to our teens, there are times when they don’t want to come to us and work out things for themselves and make choices and decisions that don’t involve us and i think this is where the positivity of luna comes in- authentic, trustworthy and a platform where we know she feels safe.

Keziah, parent of teen aged 15 

great for kids of all ages

luna is a great app for kids of all ages to learn about their health and well-being in a safe and positive space. My daughter loves being part of the luna community and really enjoyed the in-person community day she attended - these are things we all need to talk about, but luna makes it fun and informative

Q: My mum is literally the nicest person every but she’s always moaning at me and I understand that’s what normal mums do but it’s like whatever I do is never good enough like when I’m happy there’s always something else I have to do I was waiting 2 hours for her today and then when she’s ready to go apparently now I have to clear my room then she got mad at me for shouting then she makes me feel like a brat. I don’t know how to control my anger, just because I’m their child they think I’m not smart idk what to do
Navigating difficult scenarios
Q: Hey luna! So i just think my life is so unfair. My brother just got a new car. I am happy for him it is a really nice car but expensive £11,000 but he is paying like £200-£250 a month. He can afford that but I overheard a conversation between him and my mum and she gave him £900 towards the car. I dont know if i am overreacting but i am annoyed i rarely get anything i want (i am 12 so its not like i ask for a car its like sweets) but its the fact that he can pay for it he has a job so why give him that when i barely get anything i want? He is clearly the favourite in my mums choice and my dad idk
Female health
