Coming Off The Pill
"The Creighton Model has brought a whole new element to my marriage. I thought that coming off of the pill after ten years was going to be very difficult, both physically and as a newlywed, but I have never felt more complete or womanly. This method has brought a new closeness that encompasses my relationship with my spouse spiritually, mentally, and physically. We have complete understanding and control over our sexual relationship, and it is absolutely empowering. My husband and I are thrilled to be a part of this model."
Not Sexually Active but Wanted Help with PMS
"Learning Creighton has been a very empowering experience for me. I am now aware of how my emotional and physical wellbeing is impacted by my cycle. Through vitamins and supplements, my PMS symptoms have decreased. I highly recommend that any woman, married or single, take the time and commitment to learn Creighton!"
To Learn a Natural Method Before Marriage
"My husband and I started using the Creighton Model about 6 months before our wedding and we are thrilled because we know we have made the right choice for our fertility plan that is blessed by God.
I feel both of us are only more loving, selfless, and open to communication because this Model forces you to practice healthy marriage skills every day.
My husband has been a practicing Catholic all his life, however I am not.
I was unsure of how we were going to plan our children, but I knew I didn't like the idea of taking pills (not until after our classes started did I truly realize the damage pills do to your body.) I wanted something that worked and I would rather not be constantly pregnant until menopause.
I was honestly skeptical about the validity of this method at first, but with research, prayer, and guided practice we can attest to the wonders of this program and our nurse who was with us every step of the way.
We have not planned to have a child yet, but I know when the time comes, I will be able to make informed decisions about when is the best time to try because I better know my body. Knowledge is so liberating.
My husband is a man always after the truth. Even for married couples who are not Catholic, this system works with the natural truths about how your body works. I can't tell you how many times he asks why this knowledge is not taught in schools. It would simply be teaching girls what the signs they see are for.
I encourage any one who is looking for a safe, reliable and loving family planning option to look into Creighton."
benefits while breastfeeding
"We have been using NFP since we were married almost 8 years. In that time we have used the Creighton model to avoid and achieve pregnancy successfully. Besides wanting to follow the teachings of the Church, I wanted to use NFP because I could never remember to take a pill regularly and the thought of needing protection from my husband was repulsive. I am now breastfeeding our third child. NFP is the safest and most reliable way to monitor your fertility while breastfeeding. Knowing that I am not introducing unsafe chemicals into my breast milk is very satisfying."
"Cathy is a phenomenal instructor; providing expert instruction and affirming guidance in the Creighton model of natural family planning (NFP). She shares her expansive knowledge in a supportive and welcoming fashion. My wife and I are so thankful to have her in our corner! Over the last eight years of marriage, NFP has helped my wife and me to both successfully avoid and achieve pregnancy. For me, the most intriguing aspect of NFP is its rooting in the science of fertility biochemistry. NFP is wholly natural, exceedingly scientific and best of all brings a married couple closer together through shared responsibility."
