“…my wife and I decided the Creighton Model was a safe, healthy way to celebrate the sacrament of marriage.”
I first learned about NFP by listening to Catholic Radio. After doing some research at home, my wife and I decided the Creighton Model was a safe, healthy way to celebrate the sacrament of marriage. After successfully using the Creighton System for almost a year now, my wife and I wish we started right after we were married. Once we met with Christine a couple of times to understand what we needed to look for each day it became a simple, daily habit. In just a few short months we felt comfortable with the system. By actively using NFP, my wife and I have become closer to each other and God! NFP is a highly successful way to become pregnant or naturally prevent pregnancy following Catholic teachings.
Our instructor Christine Reilly was excellent! She is a true professional and a woman devoted to her faith and helping people achieve the greatest gift of all… the gift of life. After learning the Creighton System, I try to inform as many people as I can about this wonderful way to start a family or enjoy your spouse in a faithful way. It is very special to my wife and me, since this year is the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae written by Pope Paul VI.

“The Creighton System gave me the tools and the network I needed as I started my journey as a married, modern, woman of faith.”
I can't stop talking to everyone I know about the Creighton System. Since my husband (then fiancé) and I started our journey, I have learned more about fertility and my body than I ever learned in school, from a doctor, or my parents. At first, it looks scary and overwhelming, but with a good teacher, you will become an expert quickly. Because of the Creighton System, I now have the best OBGYN who uses the System, who listens to me, knows my unique cycle, and cares way more about my health than any other doctor. We are looking into health issues I have that every other doctor brushed off before. The Creighton System gave me the tools and the network I needed as I started my journey as a married, modern, woman of faith.
The System taught us to communicate about very important aspects of our marriage, giving us a language that makes those conversations come naturally. It makes my own fertility ours as husband and wife — something we can both respect and understand. We have been successfully using it to avoid pregnancy, as we start our life together, in a way that makes me feel like we are following God's plan. Every time, no matter where my fertile or infertile period falls, it always works out for the best. Honestly, natural family planning is the most feminist thing I can think of. It takes the mystery out of the beautiful nature we all hold, and gives men and women something to respect together. It has made me and my husband closer than ever, because he is with me for every bit of confusion, worry, and joy as we both learn and grow.

“Christine was an excellent guide along my journey and I would recommend her and Creighton Model charting to everyone.”
I learned I have PCOS in August 2017. I started meeting with Christine and following the Creighton Model in mid-September. My husband and I thought it might take us longer to get pregnant because of my condition, so we started actively trying to conceive from the first month I started tracking my cycles. I was amazed when we took a pregnancy test in February and it was positive! I didn't think it would happen that quickly, but it proves that this method works. Christine was an excellent guide along my journey and I would recommend her and Creighton Model charting to everyone. I know my body much better now and we're due with our first child in October.
“I came away feeling empowered with the idea that this method is simple, natural, and completely doable.”
I didn’t know what to expect when I took the introductory session, but I was thoroughly and pleasantly surprised at how informative and inspiring it was. I learned so much about how my body works and how perfect the design is for fertility. I came away feeling empowered with the idea that this method is simple, natural, and completely doable.
