The Friends of FertilityCare Philadelphia are a group of health care professionals and members of our community who wish to promote effective, integrated health care for women and couples. To that end, the Friends of FertilityCare are dedicated to making Creighton Model FertilityCare™ services and NaProTechnology known, respected and applied throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. The primary intention of the Friends of FertilityCare is to educate all people in the "good news" of Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System and NaProTechnology.
We remain faithful to our mission of educating men and women about the gifts of fertility and authentic intimacy in relationships. We promote the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) and NaProTechnology (NaPro) as effective approaches to family planning and cooperative fertility care throughout the life cycle. No artificial hormones, no devices—just knowledge that empowers adolescents to know how their bodies work, accurate fertility monitoring that allows couples to make informed decisions for family planning, and medical and surgical approaches that find root causes to problems, rather than resorting to suppressive or destructive artificial reproductive technologies like IVF.
