Lisa’s Story: Empowering Women Through Fertility Awareness

Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, founder of Fertility Friday

Lisa Hendrickson-Jack is a certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner, she’s the founder of Fertility Friday, the host of the Fertility Friday podcast, and the author of “The Fifth Vital Sign”. 

As a certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner, Lisa teaches women to chart their menstrual cycles for natural birth control, conception, and monitoring overall health. Drawing heavily from current scientific data and literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to fertility awareness and menstrual cycle optimization. Lisa’s book “The Fifth Vital Sign” details how to master your cycle and optimize your fertility, she debunks the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children, and she makes the case for why we should recognize the menstrual cycle as the fifth vital sign.

Lisa is the host of the Fertility Friday podcast, a weekly podcast devoted to helping women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between menstrual cycle health, fertility, and overall health. With well over a million downloads, Fertility Friday has become the #1 source for information about fertility awareness, and menstrual cycle health, connecting women around the world with their cycles and their fertility. 

Lisa’s passion is to help women develop body literacy and gain confidence using Fertility Awareness at all stages in their reproductive life. There is a powerful connection between women’s menstrual cycle and their health – and as Lisa’s says in this episode, “Women’s menstrual cycle should be recognized as the fifth vital sign of women’s health and fertility.” 

Lisa joins the 1 Girl Revolution podcast to share her own life story and her journey with fertility awareness. Lisa shares how she first found out about fertility awareness methods and what led to her becoming a Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner, and what led to her starting Fertility Friday – a social platform and podcast that discusses women’s health and fertility awareness. Lisa discusses the power of women’s bodies and menstrual cycles, myths and facts about birth control, fertility, women’s menstrual cycles, empowering women, and so much more.
