Creighton Model FertilityCareTM System


Understanding and Embracing Your Fertility

Today, many people are eager to learn more about their own bodies' natural processes and how to act healthfully and work cooperatively with them. They would like to learn safe, natural, healthy, and holistic ways to plan their families. Franciscan Healthcare FertilityCare™ Center, part of the Mayo Health System, offers Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System services to give couples this opportunity and now features NaProTechnology.


Why Creighton?

The Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS) is an ovulation method that stands out at the most medically relevant and stands alone as the only one to feature NaProTechnology. NaProTechnology is a new women's health science that monitors and maintains a woman's reproductive and gynecological health and provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system. With the CrMS couples are empowered with information about their fertility to:

  • postpone pregnancy
  • achieve pregnancy
  • identify gynecological health issues
  • enhance marital bonding.

What Can I Expect?

All couples will first attend an Introductory Session. It is an hour-long presentation that is designed to give couples enough information to decide if the CrMS is right for them. Then, if interested in learning and using the CrMS, couples will have the opportunity to receive their materials and schedule a Follow-up Session.


Follow-up sessions are held individually with couples. This is where the actual learning of the system takes place and where the CrMS is tailored to the individual needs and goals of the couple.


Classes are offered at both the LaCrosse and Onalaska locations. Registration is required.


For more information, session rates, or to register, call (608) 392-4624.
