Fertility Awareness

Nurture offers Fertility Awareness education using the teachings of Fertility Care Scotland, which was founded in 1976 to help women in Scotland understand and appreciate their fertility thereby enabling Scottish couples to follow a completely natural and safe method of family planning. This understanding has meant that women can gain knowledge of their fertility without having to go through possible stressful examinations.

The method taught by Fertility Care Scotland is called the Billings Ovulation Method. For just over 30 years Fertility Care Scotland's trained personnel have taught couples to use this method both for the Achievement of Pregnancy and also for the Postponement of Pregnancy. The Billings Ovulation Method teaches women to recognise the fertile and infertile phases of their menstrual cycle by observing the presence of mucus and by reading the body’s natural sensations. This can be done regardless of length or regularity of the cycle. The tuition is on a one to one basis and teaches a woman to understand and appreciate her fertility. This fertility awareness allows women to recognise her bodies own natural signs of fertility, ovulation and point in cycle. A woman is taught to interpret her natural signs of fertility through all her changing life stages from puberty to menopause.
