Chloe Skerlak is a Justisse Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner and Certified Fertility Awareness Educator who is wildly passionate about the menstrual cycle! When she’s not hosting fertility awareness charting circles, teaching charting online, or taking photos of cervixes, she facilitates Period Positivity Workshops for parents and pre-teens because she believes body literacy is for everyone and every age.

This episode is the first one where we’re talking about teenagers and birth control and as someone who was put on the pill as a teenager, Chloe spoke to my heart! Chloe and I talk about how uneducated we were about fertility and periods as teenagers, why it’s helpful to teach teenagers about fertility awareness, when to talk to teens and tweens about periods and birth control, and so much more!
