Natural Family Planning

St. Anthony’s Medical Center offers monthly introductory educational sessions focused on the Creighton Model Fertility Care System (CrMS). This is a uniquely American model of advanced procreative education. It is the only medical model of procreative education in existence.

The Creighton Method is based upon a couple’s knowledge and understanding of their naturally –occurring phases of fertility and infertility. It is medically safe, respects the dignity of women and respects the integrity of marriage. As a system of fertility regulation and reproductive and gynecologic health, it can be used to:

  • avoid pregnancy
  • achieve pregnancy
  • perform targeted hormone evaluation and treatment
  • identify ovarian cysts
  • evaluate the effects of stress
  • treat premenstrual syndrome
  • evaluate and treat reproductive abnormalities

Creighton Model Fertility Care introductory sessions are held monthly. Space is limited and advance registration is required.

Cost: $40 per couple
Time: 7 to 8 p.m. the first and third Thursday and Friday of every month
Location: Main hospital building, third floor Heart & Surgical Pavilion Conference Room
