1:1 SESSIONS - WHAT TO EXPECT?

Chatting about your fertility goals and reproductive health can feel daunting.

Making decisions about contraception and pregnancy, discussing infertility, pregnancy loss and period pain can bring up grief, fear, anger as well as joy, hope and pleasure. 

Session work gives you a safe space to share your experience and learn about your fertility.

 

Sessions begin with a review your reproductive health history.

 

Then we:

  • Discuss your fertility and menstrual cycle goals and the most suitable way to help your body find it's balance.

  • Look at how stress, nutrition and lifestyle factors could be contributing to menstrual cycle irregularities or infertility.

  • Get you started with the basics of cycle-tracking so you can begin learning about your hormonal health and cycle needs. 

  • Consider herbal and nutritional support for your cycle.

In follow up sessions we'll review your cycle charts and how the herbal or nutritional recommendations are supporting you.

You are welcome to bring a partner or friend to your session.

CAN FERTILITY EDUCATION HELP?

An Australian study looking at infertility in women attending an IVF clinic indicates that though the majority of women ( 68·2%)  believed they had timed intercourse mainly within the fertile window of the menstrual cycle in their attempts at conception, but only 12·7% could accurately identify this window. (Hampton, 2013)

COMMUNITY SUPPORTED SESSIONS

Times are tough and marginalised folks are those who feel the struggle most of all, especially those of you in rural areas - like much of Maine. 

 

I started Community Supported Sessions (CSS) as a way to increase access to my work at a discounted rate for folks in need. 

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

$5 of every session goes into the Community Cup. 

 

When the cup fills up, I offer free or discounted 1:1 sessions to BIPOC folks who are financially disadvantaged. 

 

Clients and others in the community who value my work also have the option of paying extra for services - and that extra goes into the cup and keeps adding up.

 

WHO QUALIFIES FOR SUPPORTED SESSIONS?

 

Reproductive injustice disproportionately affects the lives of Black, Indigenous and Peoples of colour and it is my intention to offer Community Supported Sessions to these folks.

 

If you do not identify as BIPOC but are also suffering financial hardship, yes, you may also apply.

 

ABOUT THE PROCESS

It's an honor system.

 

I trust that the folks who request a CSS are in need, I'm not going to ask you difficult questions about why and how you're disadvantaged, it's enough that you have requested support. 

If you're budget is restricted and you're not sure whether to ask for CSS or not, consider your responses to the following questions:

  • I have enough money to pay my bills, rent/mortgage and buy food each week.

  • I'm able to purchase clothes, books and gifts for my loved ones. 

  • Occasionally I eat out or get take-away.

  • I am able to go on vacation once a year. 

I acknowledge that this system is not perfect - it means folks in need, have to wait for care. I am hoping to revise and expand what I'm able to offer to continue access to reproductive education and resources in the future. If you have any thoughts, concerns or considerations I welcome your feedback.
