Praise for Rose!

"I was able to have all my questions answered and get the encouragement and reinforcement I needed to be able to let my fears go and trust that the method would work. And it did work. Getting off the pill was one of the best decisions I ever made. I am so thankful that I was able to meet Rose at the perfect time when I was just learning the method and needed the extra support, knowledge and encouragement from someone who had actually used it successfully for many years.

Not to mention that Rose educates in a fun and light hearted way that makes it easy to learn! I was able to use the fertility awareness method successfully as birth control for about 10 years, and when I was ready to start a family my partner and I were able to use the fertility awareness method to conceive."
