THe Fifth Vital Sign Austin
The Fifth Vital Sign is a community based organization started by Kelsey Knight and Emily Varnam whose mission is to "use education as preventative care, encouraging individuals to make informed choices about their health. We aim to spread accessible reproductive health information that is inclusive, captures the complexity of human experience, and is FUN!"
You can read more about Kelsey and Emily's journey to starting The Fifth Vital Sign on their Kickstarter page. Trust us. You'll be inspired.
In 2017, Amanda Cooper and Julie Le, birth & postpartum doulas in Austin, received the honor of being trained as The Fifth Vital Sign Facilitators by Kelsey and Emily to build the 5VS community worldwide; which is how The Fifth Vital Sign Austin was born.
In this class, you'll learn about the female anatomy & physiology, hormonal and non-hormonal birth control, menstrual awareness & cycle charting, menstrual cycle hygiene products, breast & chest awareness, informed decision making, and how to discuss options with your health care provider.
We invite anyone of all ages to join our class! Please contact us to sign up for our next class in early 2018.
