The following are wonderful resources to help you in your education of family life, as well as answering a lot of questions you may have.


Pope Paul VI Institute

The Pope Paul VI Institute, founded in 1985 by Thomas W. Hilgers, MD, is internationally recognized for its outstanding achievements in the field of natural fertility regulation and reproductive medicine — 30 years of scientific research and educational program development; allied health professional education programs for couples and professionals; professional, caring, and morally acceptable patient services. The Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction is building a culture of life in women’s health care through its major developments — Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System and NaProTechnology.



NaProTECHNOLOGY (Natural Procreative Technology) is a new women’s health science that monitors and maintains a woman’s reproductive and gynecological health, and networks with family planning. It provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system.



FertilityCare™ Centers of America (FCCA) is a dynamic, growing group of affiliated centers that provide professional instruction in the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System which features the new women’s health science, NaProTECHNOLOGY. It is a national and international network of morally and professionally acceptable reproductive health services.


American Academy of FertilityCare™ Professionals

The American Academy of FertilityCare™ Professionals was founded in 1981 to foster, advance, and promote the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System through service, education, leadership, and research. The Academy was known as the American Academy of Natural Family Planning until 2001. Obtaining optimal benefit from the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) requires that a couple receive competent personal instruction. To support excellence in FertilityCare™ services, the Academy certifies FertilityCare™ Practitioners, accredits CrMS Educational Programs, and approves CrMS Service Programs.

Living the Sacrament: A Catholic NFP Community

In the winter of 2010, Living the Sacrament: A Catholic NFP Community was formed. Our founding leadership team, including admins, council members and moderators, was made up of 5 women who saw a need within our lives and our communities for a Catholic NFP Support Forum. We desired a safe space where we could come and chat about the ups and downs of our daily life and journey with Natural Family Planning while finding support and encouragement in our Catholic faith. And most of all we wanted to have that place be available to any other women who might need it.
