Through evidence-based literature reviews, engaging discussions, expert interviews, and compelling client stories, Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, FAE, HRHP covers everything from complex menstrual cycle chart interpretation and balancing hormones to overcoming fertility challenges and more. With over 20 years of experience teaching fertility awareness, Lisa combines her real-world expertise with the latest research to ensure you're fully equipped to support your clients. Lisa's first book, "The Fifth Vital Sign," describes the menstrual cycle as an important vital sign we should pay attention to.

Eloise is the founder of Family Inceptions — a “boutique style” family planning agency specializing in surrogacy and egg donation and Surrogacy Roadmap, a digital online platform teaching potential parents how to complete a successful surrogacy journey without paying agency cost— she considers it more than a business, but rather, a calling and she strives to be a blessing to the lives of people she meets each day. Eloise’s journey began in 1998 when she had the opportunity to be a kidney donor for her cousin. This experience became the catalyst for dedicating her life to serving others and empowering others to serve, and she went on to be an egg donor six times, and a surrogate three times. After these life-changing journeys, she was inspired to open a family planning agency in 2008 and continues to find deep joy and purpose in helping people fulfill their dreams of becoming parents.
