Here's What Our Clients Are Saying...
"The FAMM program with Lisa absolutely exceeded my expectations and was a great investment in myself and my clients. I greatly enjoyed my time in the program, especially the weekly interactions with Lisa and my fellow practitioners. Lisa clearly loves what she does, and is a thoroughly prepared, enthusiastic and supportive teacher. The FAMM program is comprehensive and well thought out, and provides the knowledge and skills necessary for practitioners to help clients achieve a greater understanding of their bodies, cycles, menstrual and overall health. The FAMM program progresses in a very natural and user-friendly way, and contains a wonderful balance of reading, research, discussion and practical experience. Because of Lisa and the FAMM program, I feel very well equipped and excited to help my clients understand and use fertility awareness to achieve their reproductive goals. I highly recommend the FAMM program for practitioners looking to enhance and deepen the services they offer to support their client's reproductive wellness."

Fertility awareness-based methods
There is no universal "fertility awareness method." Instead, there are many different fertility awareness-based methods based on the principles of fertility awareness cycle charting. We'll go through the main charting methods in detail so you understand the similarities, differences, and charting modalities of each.
Part of your FAMM training involves tracking your own menstrual cycles in a systematic way. You'll learn how to track, read, and interpret each fertile sign in a standardized way, setting the stage for advanced cycle interpretation.

FAMM will answer these questions and more, giving you a deeper understanding of the evidence-based practices to help your clients achieve the highest possible efficacy when using fertility awareness.
What does a normal menstrual cycle look like?
Discover the science behind menstrual cycle charting and how it matches up to the menstrual cycle using a combination of real world case studies and peer-reviewed research.

More Client Success Stories...
"FAMM completely reshaped and upgraded my women's health practice in 9-months. Lisa's training gave me the deeply rooted confidence to guide my clients in using the fertility awareness method for conception or birth control and as a true fifth vital sign. The program is comprehensive, thorough, and at a level of training + support you won't get anywhere else. As a result, my clients report feeling a newfound hope they thought was lost."
Haley Smith, MScN
Women's Health Nutritionist — Innate Rhythm
"A phenomenal program for health professionals. As a Preconception Health Coach & Holistic Nutritionist, I was looking for a certification program that would help me bridge the gap between menstrual cycles and fertility. Learning alongside Lisa was an incredible experience! Her patience, attention to detail, wealth of knowledge and passion for this subject helped me learn in a way that could not be done through a self guided program. Learning how to use the menstrual cycle and accurate charting to identify root causes to health problems was not only beneficial for my business and clients, but also extremely empowering for me as I learned how to implement it into my own life. I’m excited to be a part of the Alumni program and stay connected to Lisa’s community."
Preconception Health Coach — Naturally Nora
"As a newbie practitioner, FAMM was exactly what I needed. Not only was the content of the course stuff that you’ll see in practice, no fluff, but the small group setting made it easy for me to comfortably put my hand up and ask questions AND the additional Slack channel was a game changer to be able to say to clients “I don’t know the answer, but let me ask in my mentorship group”, which any good practitioner knows is SO important to be able to do. Lisa’s guidance and feedback not just helped me build my knowledge base, but build my ability to be confident when talking to my clients. She helped me become a better guide and coach and think through period problems with my clients more critically. 10/10 recommend."
