About us

We started Modern Fertility because we heard a lot of buzz (and panic) about fertility—but we had no idea how it applied to us. As women not yet ready for kids, were we supposed to be worried?

Planners by nature—we don’t like not knowing what we don’t know. So we dug in.

We found that you can go to a fertility clinic and take simple blood tests to check in on where you stand. But not everyone can afford them and the results can be tricky to decipher. We use information to get smart about everything in our lives—relationships, money, school. Why is something as formative as fertility still a black box?

So we went to work building Modern Fertility. An easy way for every woman to get the info she needs to make decisions about her fertility.

There’s a ton you can do in regard to fertility these days—but we think that information is the best first step.

Modern Fertility just posted this article penned by Alex Shea exploring the topic of vaginal anatomy, with valuable input by our own Heather Jeffcoat. Read on for informative tips on getting to know your own body better.

Growing up, we all watched the standard puberty video: You know, that video that told us a whole lot of nothing — conversely leaving us with a whole lot of questions? How many times have you glanced down there just out of curiosity? It may be time to grab a mirror and catch up with what’s actually going on with your vagina.

Vulvovaginal anatomy and how it all actually works

First things first, the proper term for what you may call your vagina is really your vulva. The vulva is the exterior part of your genital anatomy whereas your vagina is the tube that connects your vulva and your cervix —  or the “neck of the uterus” as Doula and birth educator, Amy Lewis, says. Be aware that no two vulvas look the same. That said, listed below are the anatomical parts of your vulva and vagina that you can familiarize yourself with to help you identify what exactly your normal is.

      Months after giving birth, it was difficult for me to go from a sitting or lying position up to a full standing position without feeling that I had to remain hunched over until a bit of time had passed to get fully upright. However, after taking Heather’s course, I learned exercises to get my body back to normal. She also showed me correct ways to lift and carry my son as well as put him in/take him out of the carseat and stroller. This class was really beneficial and Heather is a wonderful...

      Before I was referred to Heather Jeffcoat I was living in a nightmare. I had been married to my husband for three years and I was suffering from Vaginismus. That all changed when I visited my OBGYN and she said she knew of someone with a great success rate. To be honest I was hesitant at first because my first doctor had already told me that all I needed to do was order dilators from the internet and I should overcome my problem. She was wrong because I had followed the book on how to use the...
