What is Fertility Awareness?

The fertility awareness method has been used for decades to chart one's cycle. There are three main fertility signs that are tracked throughout your cycle.

  • Basal Body Temperature (BBT) 
  • Cervical Fluid or Cervical Mucus (CM)
  • Cervical Position

By using these three fertility signs our body is giving us the tools to and insight to restore our reproductive wellness. 

 

What is Reproductive Justice?

Reproductive Justice (RJ) was a term coined by Loretta Ross in the early 1990s. Ross, a woman of color, co-founder and National Coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective from 2005-2012. It has three primary values: (1) the right not to have a child; (2) the right to have a child; and (3) the right to parent children in safe and healthy environments. In addition, reproductive justice demands sexual autonomy and gender freedom for every human being. The problem is not defining reproductive justice but achieving it. - Source

 

Therefore, the reproductive justice framework begins with the proposition that while every human being has the same human rights, not everyone is oppressed the same way, or at the same time, or by the same forces. 
— Loretta Ross

Are you:

  • Tired of taking the pill because you have no idea the effects it has on your body?
  • Did you just birth a child and hesitate to go back on the pill?
  • Do you know a young person that was prescribed the pill for reasons other than preventing pregnancy?
  • Were you told that the pill regulates your period?

Why is this important?

Statistics show that women of color have the highest rates of unintended pregnancy at the same TIME use the pill as their contraception of choice. As well as black mothers in the U.S. are 3 to 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white mothers. - Source
