Writing a Birth Plan

The act of writing a birth plan serves many purposes. It leads the client to research the various tests, procedures and interventions that are part of pregnancy and birth. It facilitates communication between the client and care provider. And serves as a concise document that can communicate preferences quickly at the time of the birth. Let Jen help you get started with this free birth plan guide.

Family Planning

Standard Days Method is a fertility tracking method that can get you started with tracking your cycles and pinpointing when you are likely to be fertile to decrease or increase your chances of becoming pregnant. It can be a stepping-stone to more complicated natural family planning methods, or it can be combined with barrier methods. Even if the Standard Days Method isn't ideal for you, it can help you sort out your options for family planning. I feel strongly that comprehensive sex education should be available to everyone, so I offer free private Standard Days Classes.
