Menstrual cycle charting, also known as “the fertility awareness method” or "natural birth control", is a practice to understand how the body changes throughout the menstrual cycle. The many benefits of charting include increased body awareness, clarity about what daily practices can promote hormonal health, as well as awareness about when one is fertile and one is not. An informed charting practice supports a vast array of physical, energetic, mental and emotional needs related to “do it yourself” holistic pelvic healthcare.
During this workshop, you will learn:
-How to chart your menstrual cycle without or alongside fertility apps
-How to create conditions for long term effective charting
-Practical steps to chart your cycle for natural birth control support
-Troubleshooting and tips for accurate menstrual cycle charting
-What happens in the body during various menstrual cycle stages
-Herbs for supporting hormonal shifts and reproductive system health concerns*Each participant will go home with a starter menstrual cycle chart. Please bring a notebook you'd like to begin your charting in and a pen you love to write with!
This event is meant to provide a safe space to all interested in learning about holistic pelvic healthcare practices for themselves and their loved ones.
