GOOD FOR YOUR BODY AND SOUL
Natural family planning helps couples “to experience the unity and grace that comes from living out marriage the way God intends.”
– Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila
Through these courses in Natural Family Planning (NFP), you will learn to understand the natural cycles of fertility and infertility, and grow in your realization of how important and vital these gifts really are. You will appreciate your own fertility as a normal and healthy part of your life and marriage.
Natural Family Planning strengthens the marital relationship. It increases the quality and frequency of communication between the spouses. Couples find that the love and respect they have for each other grows as their understanding and appreciation of their fertility increases.
Natural Family Planning is:
- Inexpensive to Use
- A Shared System between Husband and Wife
All Natural Family Planning courses and methods provide teaching on:
- The biology of how NFP works
- Method effectiveness
- How to make daily observations
- How to chart
- The Catholic Church’s teaching on marital love and sexuality
Learning NFP is Simple
