Fertility Awareness Education

Fertility Awareness is the process of learning, observing, and interpreting the fertile signs of your body. This information can then be used to achieve your personal fertility goals, whether you are avoiding pregnancy, trying to conceive, or monitoring your health. While the method can be easy to learn, the best results and highest efficacy come when you receive personalized education from a trained teacher.

As an Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner, I have been extensively trained to teach the Justisse Method of Fertility Awareness and to assist you in interpreting your chart as you begin this practice. I am also certified through the Association of Fertility Awareness Practitioners.

Teaching Structure

The Justisse Method is a sympto-thermal fertility awareness method, focusing on tracking cervical mucus observations and basal body temperature. Like any fertility awareness method, it is a practice and you will become more adept at it the longer you use it. To set you up to be the most successful in your fertility goals, the process for learning the method consists of an introductory presentation and several follow up sessions. The introductory presentation (the Justisse Method Introductory Presentation) reviews the anatomy and physiology of the female reproductive system, the observable signs of fertility (including cervical mucus and basal body temperature), and the Justisse charting methodology.

After the introductory presentation, we'll meet one-on-one a week later to review your health history and fertility goals. We'll also review any questions you may have. After that, we'll meet three more times (about once a cycle) for Follow Up Sessions to review your charts together. You'll get clarifications and answers on your charts and an opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns. This teaching structure has been proven to provide the highest efficacy no matter if you are trying to conceive, avoiding pregnancy, or monitoring your health.

“Working with Vienna was easy and enjoyable. I felt seen and heard and I loved how individualized it was to me and my body/cycle. All suggestions were made out of love.” -Eva G.

Fertility Awareness for Every Body

While fertility awareness charting is often talked about in relation to heterosexual couples, it can actually be used by anyone with a functioning uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina, and vulva, regardless of your sexual orientation, relationship status, or gender identity. Even if pregnancy isn't a concern for you, gaining an understanding of how your cycle works can provide vital information about your health. In fact, the menstrual cycle is recognized as the 5th vital sign of the body. Charting your cycle can help you increase your chances of success with IUI and IVF, realize underlying health concerns, improve problematic periods, and increase body confidence.
