Description

Fertility awareness is a scientifically proven method that allows women to prevent or plan pregnancy naturally and without taking hormones. It works by tracking three signs that teach us what days throughout the month each of our bodies is fertile.

The act of tracking your fertility signs will help you get to know your body's cycle and your body's wisdom in a deep, empowering way.

Course Content:

Introduction to the female reproduction system and fertility cycle

Learn about fertility signs and how to track them daily in a quick and simple manner

Learn about your own cycle and its fertile attributes and how to plan pregnancy accordingly

- learn how to improve your fertility and your partner's fertility with few lifestyle changes

I recommend devoting 3 hours to study the course and 3 minutes for charting each day.

The course contains videos, presentations and handouts you should print.

Please take the time to go over the Udemy tour so you will understand where to find everything

During the course I encourage you to introduce yourself to me and ask me any question so I could answer your needs better

As part of the course you are welcome to send me 3 charts. Having your charts will help me make sure that you understand the method. I will be able to see if there is anything unusual in your charts that might indicate a problem with conception.

If your hormones are not balanced I could suggest ways for you to balance and strengthen yourself

***The knowledge in this course is important for everybody although it's impossible to use if you are taking any hormones affecting your cycle.

***If you are going through fertility treatment you could use this knowledge only during the breaks you might take from taking the hormones and notice your natural body behavior

Who is the target audience?
  • Any woman who wants to know her body better and her self better
  • Any woman who is interested in learning an amazing tool to track and improve her health
  • Any woman who wants to increase the chances achieving natural pregnancy

FAM fertility awarness instructor

Hello everyone, welcome to my profile. My name is Avishag Maya. I'm a certified Naturopath and Herbalist. I specialize in Fertility and Sexual Function. I'm a Tantra and Sacred Sexuality Coach, and a Fertility Awareness Teacher (FAM) for naturally preventing/achieving pregnancy. I offer workshops and sessions for couples and individuals. I combine the healing properties of herbs, nourishing food, and change of life style, with meditation, guided imaginary, shamanic healing, dance, breath and laughter. When we are more "alive" we can also be more joyful and healthy. We can easily create more joy, or utilize this creative energy to live our life more fully with ourselves and others.

I'm 31 year old. I run a successful clinic in Israel. I have studied in Israel , Mexico, USA, Canada, India, Germany and more to come. Merging my passion for travel and acquiring more knowledge, I believe that the best medicine is love and more importantly, self love. In my opinion, the first step towards self love is to get a better understanding of our inner essence, and to learn how to listen to our body and personal rhythm. In my journey, I slowly gather and practice these tools, allowing for more love to flow. I feel very blessed to be able to share some of these amazing gifts with you.
