Lea has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and took her love for science and applied it to women’s health by becoming a Certified Creighton Model FertilityCareTM Practitioner. She was inspired to become a practitioner while working with her mother-in-law who also teaches the Creighton Model. Lea thought it was also a good way to work while raising a new family. “Little did I know that it would open so many opportunities.”

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.

realsolutionsAfter 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, 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, 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)
