What We Do

/What is NFP?

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a means of avoiding or achieving pregnancy. Both husband and wife observe and chart her signs of fertility. Whether it is to avoid or to achieve pregnancy, they use the gathered information to achieve their desired goals cycle after cycle, month after month. Think of it as a system of fertility awareness.

Basically:

  • If the goal is to avoid pregnancy, husband and wife can choose to abstain from sex when they know it is possible to get pregnant
  • If the goal is to achieve pregnancy, husband and wife can choose to have sex when they know that it is possible to get pregnant

NFP is much more than just birth control. Couples practising NFP will tell you firsthand that this method offers more than what most mainstream birth control methods offer. Living an NFP lifestyle is living a life of authentic intimacy.  It brings many benefits, including stronger marriages and better families.
