The story behind this book

In May of 2022 I sat down to consolidate all my FAM class handouts, about 20, in one place. My idea was to create a simple spiral-bound workbook with some additional text to link all the handouts together. As soon as I began, it seemed that all my accumulated wisdom from the last 10+ years of charting my cycles and teaching FAM wanted to come pouring out of me. Once I opened the door, I couldn't stop the writing, designing, and passion that spilled onto the page! Hence, what started as a weekend project turned into 6 months of dedicating hours each week to creating a full-fledged FAM manual. 

Simple enough for beginners, yet detailed enough for those really wanting the nitty gritty of charting and applying the fine points of the rules, Learn to Chart is a warm-hearted, nerdy, and loving guide for you as you journey into discovering your own cycle and fertility. 

Thank you so much for your interest in my book!

Love, Caitlin
