Learning the Creighton Model for Marriage Prep in the Archdiocese of Denver

The Archdiocese of Denver asks that you complete at least 3 months of this course before you are married, which includes an Introductory Session and 5 Follow Up Sessions and is taught by a trained FertilityCare Practitioner in a private one-on-one setting. This completes the marriage preparation course portion. 

Additionally, we highly encourage you to complete 3 additional Follow Up Sessions after the wedding, completing a full year of follow up with the program.  Each private session provides a chart review.

Marriage Preparation Fee Schedule:
Introductory Session, plus 5 Follow Up Sessions = $315

Additional Fees (if you'd like to continue):
Additional (3) Follow Up Sessions = $135

With this method, a woman observes her cervical fluid throughout the day and records this information on her chart at the end of each day. 

The Creighton Model also features NaProTECHNOLOGY , which is  new women’s health science.  Both the Creighton Model System and NaProTECHNOLOGY provide a medical framework to evaluate and treat a variety of conditions from which women of reproductive age suffer.

This method is highly recommended for women with gynecological problems (such as PMS, ovarian cysts, irregular cycles, PCOS, or endometriosis) or infertility.

Our Program

We teach women how to chart their monthly cycles and to clearly understand the times of fertility and infertility.

Our program is privately taught. It's designed to follow you for one year, and begins with an Introductory Session, which provides an overview of the program and how the system works. The program includes eight Follow Up Sessions in total. Each session runs approximately 1 ½ hours long. The private Follow Up Sessions occur every 2 weeks for the first four follow ups, then once a month, then once every three months.

The cost of the one year program is $350. You also have an "a la carte" pay option, "which includes $70 the first night, for the Introductory Session and materials, and $45 for each private Follow Up Session.

The Creighton FertilityCare System is unique in that it features NaProTECHNOLOGY, which is a new reproductive science. We work with trained medical doctors in the Denver area to help diagnose and treat female reproductive health problems such as infertility, PMS, post-partum depression, ovarian cysts, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and many others.

The schedule for classes is set by each FertilityCare Practitioner. We have several Practitioners in the Denver area. Please refer to our listings.

In the news: Creighton Model FertilityCare in the Denver community

The Denver Catholic Register today published an incisive article by Julie Filby about the Creighton FertilityCare System and the Pope Paul VI Institute.

The institute is internationally recognized for developing the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaPro Technology (natural procreative technology). The Creighton Model tracks biomarkers to monitor hormonal events during a woman’s menstrual cycle to determine fertility. It can be used in conjunction with NaPro Technology to diagnose and treat reproductive and gynecological problems, and employ medical and surgical approaches to correct conditions while sustaining procreative potential.

NaProTECHNOLOGY — A Major Breakthrough In Monitoring and Maintaining a Woman's Reproductive and Gynecological Health

NaProTECHNOLOGY (Natural Procreative Technology) is a new women's health science that monitors and maintains a woman's reproductive and gynecological health. It provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system.

Thirty years of scientific research in the study of the normal and abnormal states of the menstrual and fertility cycles have unraveled their mysteries.

This is the first women's health science to network family planning with reproductive health monitoring and maintenance. It is a fertility-care based medical approach rather than a fertility-control approach to family planning and gynecological health.

NaProTECHNOLOGY uses the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System biomarkers to monitor easily and objectively the occurrence of various hormonal events during the menstrual cycle. NaProtracking provides valid information that can be interpreted by a woman and by physicians who are specifically trained in this system.

Unlike common suppressive or destructive approaches, NaProTECHNOLOGY works cooperatively with the procreative and gynecologic systems. When these systems function abnormally, NaProTECHNOLOGY identifies the problems and cooperates with the menstrual and fertility cycles that correct the condition, maintain the human ecology, and sustain the procreative potential.

Women now have an opportunity to know and understand the causes of the symptoms from which they suffer.
