I am a certified NFPTA instructor and in practicum in the Billings Ovulation Method. I teach live online fertility awareness based method classes in the Billings Ovulation Method (mucus/sensation only) and in the double check sympto-thermal method (temperature & cervical mucus/sensation). I’ve practiced charting myself since January 2017, and I currently work full time as a librarian. I have a special interest in helping folks chart to avoid, and my classes are secular. Your partner is always welcome to attend my class with you at no additional charge. Reach out to me to see if I can help you in your charting journey! Find me at and on Instagram @chartyourfertility.
