    "Well, That’s Irresponsible" | Taboos, FAM + How Not to Give a Shit

    “Oh, that’s how I got pregnant with my first baby ... Great, see you when you’re pregnant ... Isn’t that the rhythm method?” These are just some of the responses that we've heard folks get when bringing up fertility awareness with others. Nat and Megan chat about how to respond to doctors, friends/family and partners in conversations about fertility awareness, and how not to give a shit about what people think.

pluviapieces ,

A wonderful dive into FAM

This podcast is amazing. I’m relatively new to FAM and I’ve already learned so much from Megan and Nathalie. It feels like an enjoyable, educational

I appreciate the gender inclusive language the hosts use. Not all people who menstruate are women.

Bairome ,

Welcoming and Empowering

These awesome, educated ladies really create space for new and old FAM charters, and teach so much useful information that isn’t always easy accessible. I love them and love listening to the podcast throughout my day!

Talia Schubert ,

Amazing podcast !
