Natural Family Planning Introductory Sessions
St Gianna’s Center will be offering introductory sessions in The Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS).  Upcoming sessions will be held on June 27 and July 18.  This is a natural family planning model based on standardized observations of the biological markers that are found in every woman’s cycle. These markers help women and couples understand the woman’s fertility and can help a couple naturally avoid or achieve pregnancy.  CrMS can also help women who are experiencing painful periods, irregular cycles, PCOS, repeated miscarriages or infertility.

If you are interested in attending a session via Zoom, please visit or call St Gianna’s Center at 813-421-4625.
