Emma received her BA in Philosophy from Hillsdale College in 2013. She and her husband married in August of 2014 and have used the Creighton Model for their entire marriage. After using (and loving!) it for several years, Emma saw the great need for the Creighton Model in her community and was inspired to become a FertilityCareTM Practitioner. She completed training with the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha in November of 2016. She is the proud mother of a beautiful baby girl, Grace, and is excited to work with the clients at FMCC.

Anne Therese is a Certified Fertility Care Practitioner. She has taught the Creighton Model Fertility Care Method to women and couples since 2011. Throughout her years of experience, she has encountered women and couples in a variety of situations, be it to achieve or avoid pregnancy, or for medical purposes, or simply to learn more about the harmony within a woman’s body.
“I enjoy meeting and working with each woman and couple who come seeking knowledge about their fertility and to walk with them on their unique journey.”
Anne Therese Stephens, CFCP
Understanding the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System and NaProTECHNOLOGY
Most women still do not know about the workings of their cycles and of the time of fertility and infertility. Every woman has the right to understand her body and the way her body works.
After 30 years of research, the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCareTM System (CrMS) and NaProTECHNOLOGY dispel the mystery of a women’s cycle while empowering the couple to be in control of their fertility on a month to month basis.
The CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCareTM System is a standardized observation technique and charting of biological markers that are essential to a woman’s health and fertility. These markers tell the couple when they are naturally fertile and infertile to effectively use the model either to achieve or avoid pregnancy.
The bonus of using this method of Natural Family Planning is that it is the basis for the new women’s health science of NaProTECHNOLOGY. Together, the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCareTM System and NaProTECHNOLOGY help bring couples closer together by understanding their fertility and strengthening marriages.
Learning the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCareTM System
Fundamental to the CREIGHTON MODEL and a key to its overwhelming success is a standardized approach to teaching and using the model. To accomplish this, we offer the services of our Certified FertilityCareTM Practitioners (CFCP) Lea Oberhausen, Kim Krish, Emmaline “Emma” King, and Anne Therese Stephens. We work together as a team to help women and couples understand their fertility, and we have witnessed the transformation empowering the couple to plan their own family.
It begins with an Introductory Session presented in a small group setting, which presents everyone the necessary background information and basic charting instructions. Husbands are encouraged to attend so this can be a shared system between spouses.
Following the Introductory Session, the woman/couple attend a series of Individual Follow Up sessions with Lea, Kim, Emma, and Anne Therese allowing them to quickly gain confidence in making observations and charting those observations accurately. All sessions are held at FMCC.
The Follow Up schedule is outlined so that the woman/couple will meet every 2 weeks for the first 4 sessions, then on a monthly basis until confident. After the initial meetings, we simply meet every 3-6 months for a quick chart review and new materials as needed. (see below)
