NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING
Natural Family Planning: The Marquette Model
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a holistic approach to family planning. It uses natural fertility signs to achieve or avoid pregnancy. It is embraces a couples’ fertility in accordance with nature and our Catholic faith. Some of the benefits of NFP include fertility awareness, generosity to new life, and increased spirituality. It also avoids the medical risks and adverse side effects associated with hormonal or artificial contraception. The Marquette Model (MM) NFP is an evidence-based approach. The model integrates monitoring fertility signs, urinary hormone levels, and an algorithm.
