It all begins with an Introductory Session.....

The Complimentary Introductory Session is a interactive presentation that will present an overview of the Creighton Model FertilityCare™  System (CrMS) and NaProTECHNOLOGY. After the Introductory Session, if you decide you would like to learn this system of natural family planning, you will purchase your fertility kit (book, 1 chart and 1 package of stamps-$50), schedule a follow-up appointment ($60), and begin charting the very next day. Payments can be made with a credit card or with PayPal. Health Savings Accounts me be used to make payments and upon request, a receipt can be supplied for reimbursement from your insurance company. 

Follow-up sessions, which last about an hour to one and a half hours, are where the bulk of the learning occurs and are designed to teach the woman/couple to be actual users of the Creighton Model System. Personal instruction on the use of the system, as well as complete chart review, are services provided at the individual Follow-up sessions.  Scheduled at regular intervals, attendance is essential so the woman/couple may quickly develop confidence in the use of the method.  After the introductory session, the follow-up sessions occur on the following basic schedule:

                    First follow-up..................... 2 weeks

                   Second follow-up................. 4 weeks

                   Third follow-up.................... 6 weeks

                   Fourth follow-up.................. 8 weeks

                   Fifth follow-up..................... 3 months

                   Sixth follow-up.................... 6 months

                   Seventh follow-up................ 9 months

                   Eighth follow-up................. 12 months

 

Subsequent follow-ups are recommended every six to twelve months as needed.   

*Breastfeeding clients: The usual follow-up schedule should be followed through the first four follow-ups. However, after the 4th follow-up a special breastfeeding follow-up schedule is recommended.

*Some clients may require additional follow-ups depending upon their situation.

In order to use this system successfully, it is necessary to make accurate observations and to chart them correctly. It also requires following the instructions, which depends on the couples decision to avoid or achieve. The bulk of the learning occurs during the follow-up sessions and is essential to learning the system. 

It is the desire of FertilityCare™ Services of Venice that all women have the opportunity to learn the Creighton Model System. If the follow-up fees would create a financial hardship please discuss with your practitioner and a reduction in fees can be arranged.
