Show Notes

Although FEMM is one of the latest fertility awareness methods (FAMs) to take the world of women's reproductive health by storm, it's built on a long history of established science. Complete with a sleek mobile app and established restorative reproductive medicine protocols—and a growing directory of healthcare providers around the world trained to administer those protocols—FEMM is what you might call a "next generation" fertility awareness method. And with a growing list of FEMM teachers worldwide (including our very own Cassondra Moriarty!), learning to use FEMM for health and family planning has never been easier.

In this episode of The Natural Womanhood Podcast (Season 1 / Episode 3), we sat down with Anna Halpine, CEO and founder of FEMM, to learn more about this increasingly popular method of fertility awareness, and how it is revolutionizing women's hormonal health.

The Natural Womanhood Podcast brings together experts in the field of fertility awareness for candid, informative, and friendly conversations about authentic women's health. The podcast is hosted by Grace Emily Stark and Cassondra Moriarty. Grace is an award-winning journalist, a certified instructor of the Sympto-Thermal Method of fertility awareness, and she holds a M.A. in Bioethics and Health Policy. Cassie is a certified instructor of FEMM, an IBCLC lactation consultant, and DONA postpartum Doula.

The Natural Womanhood Podcast is a production of Natural Womanhood, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving women's health literacy through the promotion of evidence-based fertility awareness methods (FAMs) of natural family planning. Natural Womanhood exists to help women discover safe, side effect-free natural birth control options, empower them to work with their bodies instead of against them, and to inform them about harmful birth control side effects.
