Fertility Education

A Deeper Understanding of a Woman’s Cycle

Fertility Awareness Methods

Whether your desire is to avoid pregnancy, achieve pregnancy, or monitor your fertility, the Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CrMS) and the Family of the Americas Ovulation Method are systems of natural fertility regulation that help you realize any of these goals. The methods rely on the standardized observation and charting of biological markers that tell a woman or couple when they are naturally fertile or infertile. These biomarkers also identify abnormalities in a woman’s health. These Fertility Awareness Methods are an “authentic language” that, with a few minutes of daily observations, provide a woman with incredible insight into the function of her body.

NaProTECHNOLOGY is a new women’s health science that seeks to restore a woman’s reproductive health. When abnormalities are identified by charting with the Creighton Model System, NaProTECHNOLOGY is used to diagnose the problem and treat it cooperatively with the cycle. NaProTECHNOLOGY uses cooperative treatments for any gynecologic condition, from PMS to infertility. Women now have the opportunity to know and understand the causes of the symptoms from which they may suffer.

Our Practice

Hope Woman’s Clinic offers fertility care at its New Orleans location and in Baton Rouge through Woman’s New Life Center.

Our Family of the Americas Ovulation Method instructors have completed a Master Teacher Training and work closely with an assigned supervisor prior to receiving a Family of the Americas Master Teacher certification.

Our Creighton FertilityCare Practitioners have completed an internationally recognized 13-month Education Program for FertilityCare Practitioners; our Practitioner Interns are currently enrolled in this training program, which is accredited by the American Academy of FertilityCare Professionals. Through this program, we are able to offer instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System with the highest quality of an allied health profession.

Since our clinic features NaProTECHNOLOGY, we work very closely with physicians who are trained as Medical Consultants to offer restorative health care for a woman’s reproductive and gynecologic needs. Our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Susan Caldwell and our affiliating physicians are Board Certified medical doctors who receive additional training in an internationally recognized program for Natural Family Planning Medical Consultants. Through this program, the Medical Consultants use CrMS and NaProTECHNOLOGY conjunctively to diagnose gynecologic problems and treat them cooperatively with the natural cycle to restore gynecologic health.

We are also correlated with a local lab, Clinical Pathology Laboratories, for the convenience of our clients who need diagnostic lab work. There are several locations throughout the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. Click here to find the lab nearest to you.

Out of Town Clients

You can still chart with us even if you live out of town! If you are interested in learning the Creighton Model FertilityCare System or the Family of the Americas Ovulation Method and/or are seeking solutions to a health problem through NaProTECHNOLOGY, but do not live in the New Orleans or Baton Rouge areas, do not get discouraged. We gladly welcome anyone that lives outside of these areas. Long distance learning involves traveling to the first meeting, which is a slide presentation, and then subsequent meetings may be held over the phone.

If you are located too far from New Orleans or Baton Rouge, there are Creighton FertilityCare Centers located throughout the United States. You can search for a Practitioner at www.fertilitycare.org.

Long Distance Follow-up Information

On the day of the scheduled follow-up, the client must email a picture of her chart to her practitioner. This can be done by scanning the chart or photographing it. It is best if each side of the chart can be scanned or photographed separately. When photographing, it is best if the chart is placed on a flat surface and the picture is taken directly over the chart, as opposed to at an angle. This makes it easier for your practitioner to see and to correctly read your chart with you. For the follow-up, please have your chart and stamps, user manual, picture dictionary, and a red pen.
