A virtual course for women who want to break free from their current birth control method & use fertility awareness as natural birth control with confidence
Module 1: Sympto-Thermal Method Intro
You will start working with the natural birth control method -- the sympto-thermal double check method of fertility awareness -- in the very 1st course module.

Menstrual Cycle Deep Dive - Learn how your menstrual cycle works & explore the phases of the cycle
Cervical Fluid 101 - Learn the different types of cervical fluid, how we use them to prevent pregnancy, and how to track them on your cycle tracking chart.
Basal Body Temperature 101 - Learn how to track temperature & how to use it to prevent pregnancy
Module 3: The 4 Rules
+ Your Fertile Window
In Module 3, we will cover...
Opening & Closing Your Fertile Window - Explore how to open and close your fertile window using cervical fluid, temperature, and the calendar method double check
The Rules from A to Z - Learn the 4 rules for using the sympto-thermal method and how they are applied to prevent pregnancy with up to 99.6% efficacy.
Module 4: Cycle Charting Intensive
In module 4 we will immerse ourselves in cycle charts. You'll have a chance to work with real-life cycle tracking charts from real women. You'll be able to practice first-hand how to apply all of the rules of the sympto-thermal method BEFORE you have to do it with your own cycle. This module is filled with practice charts & a hands-on look at applying the rules of the method to real cycle charts.
Module 5: Cervix + Other Tracking Signs
In Module 5, we will cover...
Tracking Cervix Changes - Learn how the cervix changes throughout the month, what it tells you about your fertility, and how to easily track these changes.
Additional Tracking Signs - You will also learn about the many other body symptoms that are signs of fertility and cycle changes, many of which you already experience and don't even know it!
Module 6: Special Cycle Scenarios
Sometimes we wake up later than we usually do and it screws up our temperature. Other times we've tracked everything and still temperature never rises or cervical fluid never peaks and you're left going WTF? In module 6 we cover exactly what to do with disturbed temps (as we call them) and anovulatory cycles, where maybe ovulation didn't happen, so that you can continue tracking with ease and confidence.
Module 7: Your Cycle After Birth Control
When you're in the first 3 to 6 months or so off of hormonal birth control your charts will look, well, confusing. That's because your brain and body are in the process of trying to remember how to ovulate after, likely, years of not ovulating at all. It will take time for your charts to normalize and we'll explore exactly how to keep charting safely during that time.
Module 8: Spotting Cycle Imbalances
In module 8 we explore how to use your cycle tracking charts to uncover menstrual cycle imbalances that could be leaving you stuck with painful cramps, heavy periods, irregular cycles, future fertility struggles, and more. With this information you can have empowered conversations with your health care providers and *actually* get healing support for the root cause instead of a band-aid solution.
Module 9: Natural Menstrual Cycle Support
We'll take a deep dive into the simple & natural foods, supplements, & lifestyle shifts that can help create a healthy, regular, easy period and menstrual cycle. After spotting potential cycle imbalances in module 8, module 9 sweeps in with the resources & tools to help get relief from period problems & cycle struggles naturally!
Module 10: Tough Choices & Convos
Making The Tough Decisions - When using natural birth control there will come times when you have to make tough decisions. Do we need a condom? Did I miss a crucial day of tracking? We'll explore how to make the tough choices to ensure you can continue to use the method with confidence.
Talking With Partners, Doctors, and Friends - People will have lots questions and even more preconceived notions about FAMs. In module 10 you will learn how to navigate these crucial conversations with partners, doctors, and friends in an empowered way.
Module 11: Cycle Syncing Your Life
Now that you know exactly where you are in your cycle, it's time to start living in alignment with it. In module 11 you'll learn how to honor the different phases of your cycle and embrace foods, movement, sex, work-life, and decision making practices that meet you exactly where you are.
Module 12: Manifest That Sh*t
By module 12 you'll be feeling like a total wild woman. You'll know your body better than ever before. You'll literally be going with the flow. For our final module together, we'll explore how to use this deep connection to your body - to your natural, primal rhythms - to get REAL about what you want in life, call out any roadblocks, and make your dreams come true. Wild woman style.

"The Natural Birth Control Academy gave me the sexual education that I had been missing. Brandy offers an education that I never received in school, nor did I receive from my health care providers.

I am so grateful for the Natural Birth Control Academy!"

You will have the opportunity for group study, discussions, & collaboration - as well as a community of women who are excited to support you, share their experiences, and cheer you on every step of the way.
When I first started teaching women to use the sympto-thermal method I only taught the method in 1-on-1 mentorships, but it soon became clear that these women were craving something that was missing...
They were wanting other women to share their journeys with - Other women who have been where they are - Women who want similar things - Women who can support and celebrate and comfort them as they step into their power.
And, that's exactly what you get with Natural Birth Control Academy.

This used to be me...
In 2010, I was 20 lbs overweight, struggling with a decade of eating disorders, & newly diagnosed with cancer.
I had had 40+ yeast infections, daily anxiety attacks, & painful (& mysterious!) digestive health struggles in just 4 years caused by the birth control pill.
I was completely disconnected from my body.
I ignored (read: suppressed) my menstrual cycle, my periods, & my fertility so that I could grind through life.
I felt like I was broken. I felt like my body was rejecting me. I was tired of feeling like a stranger in my body AND worrying about what the synthetic birth control hormones were doing to me. I wanted to live as naturally as possible. I wanted to feel healthy, vibrant, & fun. I wanted to feel like myself again.
I was so defeated and fed up, until...
I decided that I didn't have to live like that if I didn't want to.
I began scouring the internet & my community spaces for natural birth control resources.
And, that's when I discovered fertility awareness methods.
I worked with my first FAM Educator at age 23 and it changed my life forever.
I ditched hormonal birth control + learned how to use fertility awareness methods of natural birth control.
I cultivated a full-on menstrual cycle love affair and started having the best periods of my life.
I stopped having yeast infections, daily anxiety attacks, & chronic gut health complications.
I even lost 20 lbs!
And, it's not just me. You can do it too.
I don't have something that you don't have. We have the same built-in superpowers, you and me.
Our menstrual cycles.
Our wild, feminine rhythms.
That's all you need.
What you are missing, however, is someone to show you how to tap into your superpowers.
That's where I come in.
Let this be the year that everything changes for you.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why don't we just use a device like Natural Cycles, Daysy, or a fertility app?
Femtech devices like Natural Cycles, Daysy, & fertility tracking apps use temperature tracking, past cycles, & an algorithm to determine the opening and closing of the fertile window. Because temperature is progesterone dependent, it can only accurately be used to CLOSE the fertile window. Temperature does not tell us when we need to OPEN the fertile window. Basing the opening of the fertile window on past cycles or an algorithm is a prediction (aka a guess) that is not based on real-time information from your current menstrual cycle. That is not the most effective way to use fertility awareness as birth control. The most accurate way to open the fertile window is using real-time cervical fluid tracking + its corresponding rules, which you will learn how to do in the Natural Birth Control Academy. Many femtech devices that allows users to input cervical fluid data do NOT actually use it to determine the "fertile" and "infertile" days it shows the user. The Sympto-Thermal Double Check Method uses both cervical fluid & temperature, PLUS additional tracking sings, AND 4 specific rules that allows you to open & close your fertile window based on information from your current cycle.
I'm on hormonal birth control or the copper IUD, can I still participate in the Natural Birth Control Academy course?
Yes, you can still participate in the Natural Birth Control Academy if you're on hormonal birth control or the copper IUD. Your experience, however, will be different than what has been outlined here on this page. Most types of hormonal birth control prevent ovulation and suppress a woman's menstrual cycle which means that there would be no natural cycle to track, connect to, or live in alignment with. The four natural phases of the menstrual cycle are shut down. Even the periods many women get on hormonal birth control aren't even real periods, they're chemical bleeds. To get the most out of the Natural Birth Control it is recommended that participants are not on hormonal birth control OR that they plan to transition off of it while in the course. With that being said, if you're excited to learn the information and don't mind waiting until you go off of hormonal birth control at a later date to apply the information to your personal cycle, you are more than welcome to join us in the course and learn all about this empowering natural birth control method!
For users of the copper IUD - The copper IUD can greatly alter the natural cervical fluid fluctuations of the menstrual cycle making cervical fluid tracking nearly impossible for some users. Temperature, however, can still be accurately tracked for most folks on the copper IUD. You do continue to ovulate, menstruate, & experience all phases of the menstrual cycle while on the copper IUD.
I'm newly off of hormonal birth control and I haven't gotten a regular cycle and/or period back yet. Will the Natural Birth Control Academy still work for me?
That's okay! In the Natural Birth Control Academy we can explore ways to support the return of ovulation, healthy periods, and a regular menstrual cycle using food, supplements, & lifestyle shifts (modules 9 & 10!). In fact, living in alignment with your menstrual cycle is a great way to encourage the return of a healthy period. You may not have the opportunity to track for 3 full menstrual cycles during your time in the course as intended, but you will learn how to use the method, get hands-on practice with it, and explore how to support the return of your cycle in the meantime. I recommend that anyone who is newly off of hormonal birth control plan to work with me or a member of the Sauvage Wellness team for at least 3 to 6 full menstrual cycles for chart reviews to ensure that they are applying the rules of the method correctly to their own cycles.
I'm not on birth control, but I don't get regular periods (or maybe any periods). Can I still participate in the Natural Birth Control Academy?
That's okay, too! If your periods are irregular or your struggle with conditions like PCOS the practices you'll learn in the Natural Birth Control Academy can help promote regular periods for some women. In fact, I've had clients achieve natural periods after a lifetime of PCOS using the practices outlined in the Natural Birth Control Academy. You will, however, want to plan for frequent 1-on-1 office hours calls to learn the additional tracking rule for folks with PCOS & irregular cycles, as well as to get expert support with your more challenging cycle tracking scenario. The ultimate goal is to support the creation of a regular cycle so that the more difficult irregular cycles charting scenario is alleviated over time. PLUS, the body wants to ovulate regularly!
I've never tracked my cycle before. I don't even really think about my cycle that much. Is that okay?
When you first learned to drive a car you probably had never done that before either, but look at you now - You probably drive every single day! Learning how to cycle track is very similar. You may not know how to do it now (because you're just starting!), but after learning from someone who has been doing it successfully for years (that's me!) you'll be cycle tracking every day with ease and confidence. The Natural Birth Control Academy is the perfect place to learn how to track your cycle!
I don't have the same wake-up time every day & I'm worried temperature tracking wont work for me. What can I do?
You don't have to wake up at the same time every day in order to safely & effectively use the sympto-thermal double check method taught in the Natural Birth Control Academy. There is a simple formula for adjusting temperatures on the days that you wake up earlier or later than usual. Some folks even choose to invest in TempDrop, an arm band thermometer that takes your temperature for you automatically while you're sleeping.
I'm so worried about getting pregnant. How can I feel more confident that this will really work?
Every single person who has ever participated in the Natural Birth Control Academy has had this same worry when first starting out. In fact, I felt it too over a decade ago when I began my natural birth control journey. The truth is that, like with anything new, confidence comes from doing it. It comes from learning how it works and hands-on practice. Most course participants are shocked by how confident they feel so early on in the course. Most participants express feelings of immense confidence in the method by module 6 because the beginning portion of the course is so full of practice charts & opportunities to put the method into practice.
The financial investment makes me feel nervous. Do you offer any financial support?
Yes! Not everyone is in a position to spend money all up front, and I get that. I've been there, too. You really want to do something, you know it's perfect for you, and then you look at the price and your heart sinks. I don't want the Natural Birth Control Academy to make you feel bad, I want it to make you feel GREAT! That's why it's set up like a membership so that you don't have to pay for everything all up front. There are 3 different mentoring packages starting at just $287/mo and you get to choose the one that works best for you!
Real Talk - What kind of results can I expect?
All of the results you see on this page are from real Sauvage Wellness clients who voluntarily chose to share their experiences with you. They were so thrilled by their results that they wanted you to know about them - pretty cool, huh?! I've witness my course participants find 100% confidence in this natural birth control method, heal their period cramps, get rid of pms, shorten their periods, get relief from debilitating endometriosis, become mesmerized by their bodies, and so much more! The truth is that if you want BIG results in the course, then you've got to show up in a BIG way - ready to change old habits, break free from limiting beliefs, and trust that your menstrual cycle truly is your superpower!
