About Fertility Awareness Method:
Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) is a practice of empowering women to naturally (and effectively) achieve pregnancy, avoid pregnancy and better understand their bodies. This method teaches women how her body works and provides a system by which she can observe and chart her body’s signals in order to know when she is ovulating. Not to be mistaken with the ineffective rhythm method, FAM is based on science and a stronger understanding of one’s own body. This class will not teach the method itself, but will provide a thorough introduction to those both ready to begin integrating FAM into their lives, to those who wish to understand their bodies better AND to those that are simply curious! We will provide information and resources, as well as an opportunity to ask questions and discuss. Check out this great article: Your Grandmother’s Birth Control Might Actually Work by Nona Willis Aronowitz. As well as this phone app which both educates as well as helps women to manage their charting efforts: Kindara.
