Fertility Awareness Mentoring
Get Pregnant Naturally, Use the Cycle As Natural Birth Control, Recover Postpartum, or Monitor Your Overall Health
You're here because you want something different.
You're serious about addressing your bladder health & pelvic pain.
You want to feel confident about your body and your intimate life without worrying about pain.
You're done with the hormones, and you're thinking about getting pregnant at some point.
Your intuition tells you there has to be something else - something other than pills and procedures - to stop pelvic pain & get pregnant.
You want to discover the connection between your cycle health & your pelvic health so you can get pregnant more easily, prepare for the physical changes during birth, and smoothly transition into postpartum recovery.
Fortunately, that's exactly what I do! I've worked with hundreds of women to heal pelvic health issues from the root cause.
You're actively trying to conceive
You've been trying to conceive for some time, and nothing is happening.
Your doctors tell you fertility medications, IUI, and IVF are your only options.
You are feeling like there's nothing you can do to improve your fertility on your own.
Your friends and family constantly make recommendations to you and send you google searches.
But you're tired of the unsolicited advice and want to work with a professional to help you cut to the chase.
You are curious about how your cycle is affecting your chances of conception and want to learn how to improve it to maximize your chances.
You're considering pregnancy in the near future
You want to come off the pill & restore your cycles
Discover the connection between your menstrual cycle & your pelvic health
You're not quite ready to begin trying for a baby, but it's on your mind.
You ask your doctors if you should begin preparing your body, and they all say not to worry.
But you're not sure if your hormones are balanced, and you are wondering what you can do to be proactive.
You have a history of irregular cycles or pelvic pain and have questions about how this will affect your future fertility.
You've been told all of your adult life that hormonal birth control is your best option for preventing pregnancy.
You've learned from books that hormones have side effects and may not be fixing your period issues.
And now you've decided you're done with the hormones.
You still need a way to avoid pregnancy, and you want to regulate your cycles.

" I was ready to come off hormonal contraceptives and learn about how to chart my cycle as well as understand my cycle as I prepare for trying to conceive. I started working with Dr. Mel at the end of 2021 when I stopped my hormonal contraceptive. Dr. Mel has been fabulous to work with and she has walked with me every step of the way. I am so happy to have taken this journey and learned about FAM from her!
