I'm Lisa, Certified Fertility Awareness Educator, Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner, and author of The Fifth Vital Sign: Master Your Cycles & Optimize Your Fertility.
I help health conscious women discover the connection between their menstrual cycles and their overall health so they can ditch hormonal birth control forever. Our education system has failed to teach us about our fertility, so I’m here to empower you to take control of your fertility and your life.
The Pill Isn't The Only Answer
Fertility awareness is up to 99.4 percent effective in preventing pregnancy
Fertility awareness has no impact on your natural fertility. You simply track your three main fertile signs (cervical mucus, basal body temperature, and cervical position), identify which days of your cycle are fertile, and either achieve or avoid pregnancy! The pill, on the other hand, has a whole slew of harmful side effects. To learn more about fertility awareness, click here to grab your copy of my FREE three part video series.
The Fifth Vital Sign: Master Your Cycles & Optimize Your Fertility brings together over 1000 meticulously researched scientific references to help you understand your menstrual cycle. It aims to better connect women with their menstrual cycles and to break the myth that ovulation is only important when you're ready to have a baby.
In this book you’ll learn
- what a normal cycle looks like;
- the best way to chart your cycle and increase your fertility awareness;
- how best to manage critical aspects of your health, including better sleep, exercise and a healthier diet;

The Fertility Friday Podcast
Lisa is such an inspiring, empowering voice to have in my life. This is a podcast, but it's so much more than that. It's empowered me to finally seek help with the health challenges I've struggled with, taught me so much about the female body, fertility awareness, women's health, and so much more.

Before listening to Fertility Friday, I was so unsure at how to handle my hormones, cycle, and desire to not get pregnant. I knew I did not want to take hormonal birth control, but I did not know other reliable options. I also wanted to feel prepared when starting a family. Happy to report that with Lisa's guidance and the resources she recommended, I'm going on two years of using the fertility awareness method as my main method of birth control with no pregnancy! I also feel more confident in tracking my cycles when my husband and I desire to have children.
I LOVE this podcast and have been listening to it religiously for the last two years. Lisa covers a multitude of topics ranging from general women's health, hormone-free birth control, how to maximize your chances of getting pregnant, and countless interviews with a variety of experts. If you have periods, there's something for you on this podcast. I love the work that Lisa is doing to promote body literacy and hope this review helps her reach even more people!
I love this podcast and recommend it to so many of my supporters and readers looking for holistic reproductive health information. Lisa offers so many perspectives, angles within the field of sexual health, reproductive health and body literacy.
I am so happy I found this podcast!! As an (allopathic) physician, I appreciate Lisa's recommendation that all women work with a team of providers. I am blown away by how much I've learned from her podcast in such a short amount of time — much of it I never learned in medical school, including FAM! I highly recommend this podcast to everyone, but especially those planning to try to conceive, actively trying to conceive, and couples facing infertility. Lisa, thank you for taking the time to educate us on FAM and natural resources for improving our fertility!
This has been by far the most encouraging, empowering, and informative podcast and resource I've found struggling with secondary infertility for 2 years. I now feel like I can advocate for myself, and have recently begun charting my cycles while working with a functional nutritionist. Thank you Lisa for bringing a fresh perspective to your audience who values learning more about their bodies and not just being written off when conventional medicine can't just figure us out. This journey can be long and hard but so glad that there are voices out there shedding light on fertility and women's health!
