Who is Sarah Bly?
Sarah began studying women's health at a very young age as life and its’ experiences offered her the opportunities to do so. She apprenticed as a midwife with several midwives and in 3 different countries. After attending births for over a decade she has now shifted her practice to focus on women's health education.
The emphasis of fertility awareness in my midwifery practice has come naturally to Sarah. She was blessed to be introduced to Natural Family Planning as a teenager.
Sarah has used the FAM practice in various degrees for nearly twenty five years. For the last 15 years, it has been her only form of birth control and has been completely successful. In 2007 she and her husband chose to use FAM to consciously conceive a child, who came in on the first try and was born in late June of 2008. Sarah went on to practice FAM while nursing for the following 2 and 1/2 years.
Sarah lives in Ashland, Oregon with her family, chickens, and bees. She enjoys dancing, hiking, camping, singing, gardening, beekeeping, cooking and loving. All things wild and free are her teachers.
Some details from the curriculum:
"During a Fertility Awareness workshop, we begin by covering the history of Natural Birth Control methods and their effectiveness. I share with you the reasons behind teaching the method that I do, its specifics, pros and cons and the effectiveness for contraception. We then briefly discuss the male and female reproductive anatomy and physiology. Quite a bit of time is spent on the female hormonal system. I feel it is imperative that one understands the basics of the hormonal dance before learning the method. From there we delve into the 3 primary signals of fertility that we will be following, cervical fluid, cervical changes, and temperature, followed by a brief discussion on the secondary signs of fertility. I then share with you the rules of the method for contraception and the details of how to chart. We look at practice charts and discuss variations and exceptions to the norm. We then spend time discussing the various times and transitions in a woman's life and how to support our bodies and hormones throughout our reproductive years and beyond!
Workshops are perfect for those wanting to use FAM throughout their reproductive years for self-awareness, empowerment, gauging gynecological health and all the various means it provides. They are especially appropriate for those wanting to practice FAM for birth control. For those seeking specific knowledge on consciously conceiving their child without plans to use FAM for other purposes in the future, the course will provide what you need and a lot more."
