“Whether you say you can’t or you can, you’re right.”
― Walt Disney
I have been feeling empowered lately. Empowered to make some tough, positive changes in my life. Set goals for the future (see my 30 before Thirty post & set your own milestone goals with me!). And listen more carefully to my inner voice.
On that note – I would like to share a resource that I feel so lucky to have been given and recommend that all woman read (& men can educate themselves too!). The book is called Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health by Toni Weschler. I also just came across the TCOYF website which is a great starting point if you have not yet heard of this book or the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM).
As someone who is passionate about wellness, woman’s health, preventative care and all things natural & good for us, I keep wondering how I never heard of the FAM method of birth control before. I have studied health in college, watched countless documentaries, spoken in depth with women of many different generations, researched and educated myself over the last decade. Did I really never hear about this? Or perhaps I didn’t find it relevant at the time?
Whatever the case may be – I am so grateful to have learned about this book. It is written with honesty & simplicity. It teaches us, as women, to understand our bodies & take a proactive approach to fertility, birth control & family planning. I am more in tune with my body & now have tools to take a more proactive approach to reproductive health. It teaches & talks candidly about anatomy, the reproductive cycle, reading fertility signs, using fertility awareness for birth control or pregnancy achievement, gynecological health, sexuality, relationships, babies, menopause, & self-esteem.
I hope you check it out & find it as life changing as I have! Thank you Toni!!
