NFP Course Overview

 All Natural Family Planning courses are offered via on-demand video,
with follow-up private consultations scheduled with Sara Flood, BSN, RN.

Payment is accepted from most major credit cards and phone consultations scheduled at your convenience using scheduling software within the course.

The video course offers the option to view the classes at your own pace, stop and start as needed and review the classes as often as you would like while you are a member of the course.

What to Expect

Video classes are available online. View all presentations and download charting materials on your schedule. Courses are divided into two sessions - with an additional (3rd) session for breastfeeding women.

Private consultations are an important part of this program and the learning process. Typically 2 to 4 phone consultations are expected through the learning process, but it is not limited to this number.

  • The First Session (Duration: 60 minutes)
    Learn the The Marquette Method (Basics) and everything you need to know to get started. We'll cover how your body works in cycles, how you are fertile as a couple, and how to observe signs of fertility using mucus and hormone monitoring. This session also introduces how to chart these signs and use them to avoid or achieve pregnancy. 

  • The Second Session (Duration: 30 minutes) 
    This session provides instruction for special circumstances that arise while using NFP--drawing upon the basic information provided in the first session. We'll cover how special fluids, stress cycles, coming off of hormonal birth control, and peri-menopause can influence your cycles and charting. Lastly we will review the rules to the method and discuss the gift of fertility.

  • Breastfeeding and NFP (Duration: 30 minutes)

    This session provides in depth instruction on how to apply this method to the post partum return of fertility after a woman has a baby and is breastfeeding.
