Hirsuitsm, how do you pronounce that?  Her-soo-tism.

Hirsuitism in women is caused by hormonal imbalances, resulting in thicker or darker hair growth in places hair does not normally grown for women such as upper lip, jawline, chin, neck, chest, abdomen and low back.

Many women manage other symptoms of PCOS a multitude of ways, but many still struggle with this hair growth.  Sadly, this leads many women to feel ashamed, embarassed or ever feel they aren’t “feminine.”

Typically managed by hair removal, or medication with other undesirable effects hirsutismnis a daily problem for many with PCOS.

No real solutions are offered  as to how to stop the unwanted growth, despite research showing it can be managed at home.  

Let’s talk about hair removal for a moment.

Laser hair removal is not a good fit for everyone, it’s most beneficial for individuals with fair skin and dark hair. Laser is also often expensive. 

Electrolysis is another painful and pricey hair removal technique that requires zapping each follicle with electricity.

Waxing is another method of hair removal however this requires that you allow the hair to grow up to a certain length before having it removed which can be very embarrassing. 

Bleaching is another hair removal or hair disguise technique. 

Finally shaving. This is is the one that is most accessible as it does not require very much money or time. However when shaving you end up with a thicker appearance of hair because the fine end of the hair has just been cut off by the razor.  Many times you end up with embarrassing bumps or rashes or even potentially cuts.

I am here for the woman who isn’t a good candidate for medication, or wants to be off it.  I am here for the woman who is not going for laser, electrolysis or waxing appointments. I am here for the lady who doesn’t want to bleach her hair.  You with the razor longing for a solution.  I’m here for you.

Stefanie Melo, Holistic Life and Faith Coach
I’m Stefanie and I am here for you, mama. 

I had expectations of feeling purpose and fulfillment in motherhood. Instead, I experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, isolation and a crisis of faith. 
Feeling like I couldn't be the mom I wanted to be to my five children, I began a journey of deconstructing and challenging everything I thought I believed. It was scary and messy. It felt like heresy! It also led to a deeper faith in Jesus, more peace, and a wholeness I didn't know was possible. 

Today, I am based in Arizona where I Montessori homeschool my 5 children ages 2-10 with my husband, Hernando. I am alligned with my calling as a feminist Jesus lover and a holistic coach to help mamas who are at any point in their evolving journey of faith to reclaim a little more sparkle! 
I coach women to understand and integrate their beliefs, thoughts, and emotions to create a life that offers more clarity, more peace, more joy — a life that is simply better.
I offer a unique approach to life coaching, bringing a wealth of professional expertise including: productivity, planning, massage therapy, infant bonding, fertility enhancement, birth work, postpartum support, breastfeeding support, youth and children’s ministry and Montessori education training.
