If you’re interested in taking control of your reproductive health, Natural Procreative Technology may be right for you. Natural Procreative Technology (also known as NaPro Technology) is a new area of medicine that focuses on fertility care, rather than fertility control, in female reproductive health. At Little Flower Family Medicine, Dr. Grawey, Amanda Frederick and Annie Zeiler are trained as NaPro Technology Medical Consultants.
Unlike many current treatments, which drastically alter your body with hormones or implanted devices, NaPro Technology uses natural, holistic, and effective treatments designed to respect both your procreative potential and dignity as a woman.
NaPro Technology is founded on a method of charting the menstrual cycle known as the Creighton Model. This model helps physicians identify the specific causes of any issues you may be experiencing.
Our team will ask you to chart your cycle for two months and then bring your chart to a follow-up appointment with a NaPro Consultant. If you’re interested in learning to use the Creighton Model System, our office is currently referring clients for Creighton Model teaching to an outside Fertility Care Practitioner. Give our office a call if you need a referral.
To request a NaProTechnology appointment, the first step is to be charting the Creighton Model. After charting at least 1 full cycle or month, you are ready for a NaPro Technology consult. If you have already been trained to chart using the Creighton method, please call the office to request your appointment or fill out this form.
All women (whether married, single, struggling with reproductive issues, or just taking control of their fertility) are encouraged to learn more about the Creighton Model. These classes can start as soon as menstruation starts, so girls as young as 13 are easily taught to chart.
The Creighton Model is a powerful tool to understand your body, get pregnant or avoid pregnancy, or simply maintain your gynecological health. Our office is currently referring clients for Creighton Model teaching to an outside Fertility Care Practitioner. Give our office a call if you need a referral. If you do not live near the office, you can visit this site to find a practitioner near you.
