  • The Creighton Model FertilityCare System is incredibly specific. It is tailor-made for each woman’s body and reproductive category. The Introductory Session gives an overview of the Creighton Model, reviews basic anatomy and physiology, goes through charting situations, and explains the effectiveness for achieving and avoiding pregnancy. However, in order to learn the system and use it well, individual guidance and instruction of a FertilityCare Practitioner is essential. The Follow-up schedule starts off with frequent appointments initially in order to provide the necessary support that each client needs, it then becomes more spread out once you have learned how to observe and chart successfully.

  • It is relatively easy. Learning  the Creighton Model System is a skill, like any skill after a bit of practice, it does become easy! The follow-ups with a trained FertilityCare Practitioner provide the couple with the confidence needed to quickly learn the System. The Creighton Model is not designed to be learned from a relative, friend, book or the information from this website.
