“I constantly ask my clients and my friends and the women who come to me, ‘Do you feel like you are on this emotional roller coaster?’ And I would say that pretty much 99% of women say that they do. Especially when they don't understand these phases of their cycle and the fact that everything changes on a week to week basis.” (10:59)

“What you are going to do is you’re going to start paying attention to the symptoms of your fertility. Meaning you’re going to start paying attention to those cervical fluid changes, you’re going to start to pay attention to the times you feel moody or you feel tired or you feel anxious or you feel very energetic. And once you can start to determine a pattern in this app, or you can even use a notebook or your calendar, whatever you want. That way you can really start to schedule things around your life.” (28:12)

“One of the main problems I see is that we are in such a state of chronic stress or in such alarm mode that our sex hormones are being impacted so severely that we are either losing our periods or were having very irregular ovulation and thus irregular periods, or were having a situation where we just can’t get pregnant… a lot of the time that's because our bodies are in such a state that they feel fear, they feel scared, and so it's our goal, i think it's our sacred duty actually, to really focus on how we can mitigate the effects of our stress.” (33:56)
