NATURAL FERTILITY AWARENESS (NFA)
NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING (NFP)
FOUR VIDEOS TO HELP YOU GET STARTED...
Holy Family Center for Life, Creighton Model Fertility Care and NaPro Technology
Natural Family Planning (NFP) refers to methods of family planning that can help married couples either achieve or postpone pregnancies. NFP methods are based on the scientific observation of naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of a woman's cycle. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to avoid pregnancy.
Catholic Charities collaborates with the Holy Family Center for Life, which offers NFP instruction in three locations in the Diocese (Evansville, Jasper, Fort Branch). The Holy Family Center for Life is a Creighton Model FertilityCare Center that teaches the Creighton Model of Natural Family Planning. The Creighton Model provides a system that mutually values, respects, and understands a couple's combined fertility.
If you have questions about NFP, please contact Catholic Charities. If you have questions about the Creighton Model or would like to set up an Introductory Session, please contact the Holy Family Center for Life at 812-421-2030 or FertilityCareEvansville@gmail.com
