Hannah has a passion for teaching women to interpret their fertile signs. She is a certified Fertility Awareness Educator who trained with Grace of the Moon, she has a wealth of knowledge in the field of Fertility Awareness and hormone health, and I am happy to have her on the show today!
In today’s episode, we talk about using the Fertility Awareness Method to prevent pregnancy and how the Fertility Awareness Method can be used in conjunction with other forms of non-hormonal birth control methods such as condoms, withdrawal, and the diaphragm among others. We discuss how the Fertility Awareness Method can be the perfect birth control option for control freaks, and how being able to identify your fertile window can put the control back into your hands!
