In her books, The Garden of Fertility (2004) and Honoring Our Cycles (2006), Katie Singerintroduces Fertility Awareness (also called Natural Family Planning).With these methods, a woman who charts her temperature and cervical mucus can know when she is fertile and infertile. A woman who charts her fertility signs can also know whether she is ovulating or miscarrying. You can learn remedies for problems like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and fertility.

Pregnancy (preventing or achieving it) is a crucial issue in every
woman's life; The Garden of Fertility provides an avenue for
women to know their own bodies, and when they can and cannot conceive.
I highly recommend that every doctor read this book before beginning
to practice medicine; and that every woman read it before choosing a
method of birth control, before trying to conceive a child, before going
to a doctor for a gynecological exam
Kudos to Katie Singer for her wonderful contribution to women's health.
I'm delighted to recommend her book as a companion to mine, because
she captures the beauty and power of Fertility Awareness, and the profound
ways in which it has changed so many women's lives.
The Garden of Fertility bridges the facts of biology with feminine
powers of daily observation. It encourages each of us to know how our
reproductive systems work, and to use them well. It is an icon for medicine
in the new century.
Katie Singer has read widely and deeply. She offers this thoughtful,
clear, informative discussion of Fertility Awareness in all of its ramifications,
linking our personal health and womanly cycles to the greater world
around us. Her book provides a basis for self-knowledge that enables
us to understand our menstrual cycles and choose health care wisely.
This book's chapter on Food & Reproductive Health succinctly presents
the nutritional keys to creating regular, ovulatory cycles that are
free from PMS, PCOS, progesterone deficiency, thyroid and other gynecological
problems--and that will ensure easy pregnancies and healthy children
when they're desired. The keys that Katie Singer presents are the ones
Dr. Weston A. Price discovered nearly a century ago in his remarkable
studies of healthy, nonindustrialized peoples. At last, this information
is available for contemporary women (and men) who want to create strong
reproductive health through diet!
This outstanding book teaches you how to interpret your menstrual cycle's
signals and how to gauge your gynecological health, how to determine
when you are fertile and infertile each month, what you can do at home
to avoid or heal common problems, and what different health care systems
provide when you need help. Katie Singer has done a brilliant job of
integrating these complex subjects into one volume that is as delightful
to read as it is comprehensive. If every woman read this book, I imagine
that health care would be profoundly changed.
Every woman interested in her own health--not just those who want to
conceive or to avoid pregnancy--needs a copy of this amazing book. Filled
with solid information, thoughts of love, a fine feminist viewpoint,
and great real-life stories, it is a feast of Wise Woman ways, guaranteed
to empower everyone who reads it.
