S2E1: Fertility Awareness Methods

Beth Appiah is a registered nurse at The Pregnancy Network and is currently working on her Family Nurse Practitioner degree. She hopes to specialize in Women’s Health. This month, she joins host Chloe Belk on Pregnancy Has Entered the Chat to discuss Fertility Awareness Methods.

Whether you’re curious about different methods of birth control or you’re hoping to grow your family, fertility awareness is a powerful tool to help you know your body and plan your family. 

Discover the effectiveness of fertility awareness methods, the different types of fertility awareness methods, and the benefits of understanding your fertility by listening to Beth’s episode below.

“Your fertility is actually a sign of your overall health as a woman. I know I hear a lot in my practice that women will tell me, “I have a cycle every six months but that’s normal for me.” That’s not normal.”
