Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System Classes
The Catholic FertilityCare™ Center of WNY provides instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) of Natural Family Planning. When using this system, a woman observes changes in her cervical mucus and menstrual patterns to determine when she is fertile and infertile. Couples wishing to conceive engage in intercourse when they are fertile. CrMS can be used effectively to achieve, avoid, or space pregnancies.
Learning CrMS begins with an introductory session, followed by individual instruction.
During the first year of use, couples attend 8 follow-up sessions in which they receive personal instruction and their fertility chart is reviewed. After the first year, follow-up sessions are needed only every 6 to 12 months. Couples experiencing irregularities, infertility or breastfeeding issues that may need more management can be seen as often as needed.
Please note, monthly classes are available at Sisters of Charity Hospital and Mercy Hospital of Buffalo. Additional classes at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital are also available by appointment. Call (716) 862-1944 to register or schedule an appointment.
