Yet few couples realize they already have what they need to plan their family.
They only lack the knowledge.
Modern Natural Family Planning – NFP, for short – is as effective as any contraception method at preventing pregnancy.
Unlike any contraception, NFP can also be used to encourage conception.
NFP allows you to track your fertility with great precision. When you are likely to conceive, you will know. And when you are unlikely to conceive, you will know.
It’s about your health
Modern birth control methods block conception with hormones, physical devices, and/or toxins.
All modern birth control has side effects. While these are usually mild, they can be serious, and sometimes not immediately apparent.
While NFP has its own difficulties, unexpected side effects are not one of them.
On the contrary, NFP helps you better understand your health and fertility. Your health care provider may be able to use your NFP data to make better recommendations.
Who We Are
We’re Meredith and Josh Phelps. We both grew up outside of Hartford, Connecticut, though we didn’t meet until we went to college together in Boston.
We first heard about Natural Family Planning through the Catholic chaplaincy at our college. We studied NFP during our engagement. Soon after we married, we had the opportunity to become certified Natural Family Planning educators through the Archdiocese of Boston teacher certification program.
That was over 10 years ago. Since that time, we have taught NFP to hundreds of couples, both in small groups and in private lessons.
These days, most of our students come to our house. We let our children watch a movie downstairs, and we hold classes at our dining room table!
By creating an online course, we hope to help more couples to gain the benefits and blessings of NFP. And – for most of you – the online version will be more convenient than coming over to our house. 🙂
