The first step in learning the Creighton Model FertilityCareTM System is to attend an Introductory Session. These are often group sessions and provide a basic overview of the method. The Introductory Session is also ideal for anyone who just wants to learn more about natural family planning.
To continue learning the system, individual follow-up sessions are attended. These follow-up sessions provide the opportunity to tailor the system for your particular needs and ensure that the system is effectively taught. There are generally eight follow-ups while the system is learned during the first year. For the first two months, follow-ups are held every two weeks. The next follow-up is typically one month later, and then follow-ups are attended every three months for the remainder of the year. After the initial year, long term follow-ups are held once or twice a year.
The system may be effectively taught in person or via Skype.
