Hands on charting

Fertility awareness tools for fertility support practitioners



The “Hands on charting” course is:

– a 3-months online course

– designed to provide the fundamental tools and knowledge on fertility support

– for fertility support practitioners to include the precise analysis of the menstrual cycle in their pratice !


Reserved to all the praticioners that are working with women (midwifes, nutritionists, herbalists, massage therapists, yoga teachers, counselors, doulas, energy and holistic practitioners,…) to support their health, their wellness and their fertility.


Special bonus lesson for Arvigo® practitioners:
Exactly how and when to adapt ATMAT (castor oil packs, steams, protocol and self care), depending on the signs of fertility and intercourse written on the chart.



This course will allow you to:

understand the theory behind fertility awareness and include chart reading into your practice.
We will translate complicated charts into manageable and readable menstrual cycles, deepening the anatomy and physiology behind them (all you wanted to know about fertility support, the cycle’s hormones, the cervix, cervical mucus and temperature).
This will include the presentation of the different methods and their charting systems, and the details of the symptothermal method (theory and practice), in order to effectively network and collaborate with fertility awareness teachers of different methods.

determine if the signs of fertility in the chart indicate a healthy menstrual cycle.
Or if they indicate an hormonal or anatomical problem to be further researched medically and further supported with adapted ATMAT protocols.
The chart will also allow you to evaluate precisely the effect of your support on the menstrual cycle health and the probability of conception. This is fundamental for fertility support, but also very valuable to support women with gynecological problems.

plan your support program according to the real menstrual cycle of your client, and not standard days calculation.
Only 15% of women ovulate on day 14. Knowing when and if your client ovulates allows you to better support her. The various natural fertility support treatments can be adapted to the hormonal levels evaluated from the chart.



deepen the psychology of charting and the emotional support during fertility challenges.
Many women experience increased stress levels when trying to figure it out on their own. They report a strong feeling of confidence when they are supported in tailoring the holistic program according to an easily readable chart.
We will deepen some psychological dynamics that often happen in the women and the couple with fertility challenges and charting, and how to address them respectfully.


gain this knowledge in a clear, concise and cost effective way. 
This 3 months and cost effective training provides you with a strong foundation to understand and integrate chart reading in your practice while effectively networking with the fertility awareness instructors in your community, speaking the same language.
If you wish to become a certified fertility awareness instructor, then it is compulsory to seek further training. To follow couples with holistic birth control you would need a full 1 to 2 years course.



The content will include:

– Chart reviews and case studies from the instructor and the participants

What are my qualifications to propose this fertility awareness program?

Cecilia GautierMy name is Cecilia Gautier. As a fertility awareness consultant and a certified Arvigo® practitioner, my wish is to share my experience blending these 2 beautiful holistic tools to support couples with fertility challenges. I am passionate about explaining in a simple way complicated hormonal and cycle transformations.

I followed a 2 year training with INER Italy to become a certified FAM instructor. INER has a database of more than 600.000 charts, and a Pearl index of 0,1 in perfect use and 0,8 in typical use (number of unintended pregnancy for 100 women over 1 year). It is effectivly used as a diagnosis an empowerment tool for fertility support. INER shares the symptothermal method that was invented by Dr Roetzer in Austria. I am teaching women, couples and professionals since 2014.

I am now completing a training in Restorative Reproductive Medecine (similar to NaproTechnology) at the University of Medecine of Lyon, France. It is a tool to aid doctors and midwifes to restore fertility instead of bypassing it in cases of fertility challenges. This allows me to add a strong understanding of the medical support of natural cycles and fertility and better assist the medical professions in their task to help women and couples.

I focus in supporting holistically the feminine reproductive health, blending natural and energetic therapies, support of the chakra system and aromatherapy. I completed my training becoming a certified and advanced practitioner of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® in order to aid digestive and reproductive health supporting the optimal uterus position and abdominal circulation.

I support clients presenting difficult conditions with lifestyle support, the Arvigo® techniques and chart analysis daily in my practice in Italy, and abroad with educational online support.
