Meet Rowan Jakobah (she/they)
Herbalist; Fertility Awareness & Sexual Health Educator; Youth Sex Educator; Release and Queer & Trans Reproductive Support Specialist
I'm a student of the Earth and child of the plants with a passion for justice. My relationship with the plants has led me through my continued search for ways to re-wild as humans and rediscover what it means to have a body on this planet. This search eventually brought me to fertility awareness.
Now, as an herbalist, fertility awareness and holistic sexual/reproductive health educator (FAE/SHE), I have learned to read my body and learn the ways its cycles ebb and flow with the rhythms of the Earth, and my intention is to share what I have learned in accessible ways.
I am a certified FAE/SHE through The Well: School of Body Literacy and the Association of Fertility Awareness Professionals. I am trained as an herbalist through years of self study and apprenticeship with herbalist and retired midwife Janice Marsh-Prelesnik. My release support and queer & trans reproductive support knowledge comes from a combination of training (Molly Dutton Kenny and Birthing Advocacy Doula Trainings, respectively), self study, and learning from colleagues in the birth world.
I am interested in facilitating connection to our bodies and to the Earth through an actively anti-racist, gender affirming, sovereignty-supportive, liberatory lens, and I do what I do all through my personal experience of queerness, gender expansiveness, and deep love of the Divine Feminine/Yin/Creatrix. I see clients both remotely and in-person in West Michigan.
Herbalism is an integral part of all of my work and will always be available to clients. Book an exploratory call with me to see if we're a good fit!
Why Fertility Awareness?
You can learn...
Learn about the contraceptive spectrum, how to chart your cycles, and what rules to follow to practice fertility awareness as a highly effective form of contraception.
Learn about timing conception according to your unique cycle, and how to support your body to create a healthy, vibrant pregnancy.
Conscious Conception Support
Learn how taking your waking temperature and checking cervical fluid daily can clue you into what's happening in your body, and how your experience of life can change throughout the cycle.
Learn how our cycles are tied to the cycles of the Earth, and how deep nourishment of self and the planet are one and the same.
