Course 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

What are the requirements?

  • In order to apply what we learn you will need to purchase an appropriate thermometer, which I will explain about later.
  • Throughout the course you will need to print out different charts and information pages. For this reason, access to a printer will be necessary.
  • Throughout the course I will ask you to fill out questionnaires that test your understanding. It is recommended you take the time to fill these out.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn the cycle of my own body and the reproductive processes within me
  • Learn the language of the body and develop trust in it
  • Acquire an amazing tool with which to gauge my own health
  • Develop the ability to take responsibility for my own fertility and trust myself in this
  • Be able to decipher the effects of change in my life on my cycle and my health
  • Strengthen the connection between my mind and my body. Explore my sexuality, empowering my body image, self-confidence and presence within my own body
  • Know exactly what days I am fertile each month in a way that can make it easier to achieve pregnancy

What 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

Instructor Biography

Avishag Maya Zloof, 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.
