What is Natural Family Planning (NFP)?

Hormonal birth control is not worth the risk. Why take the gamble when Natural Family Planning is a risk-free and effective alternative?

A natural way to postpone or achieve pregnancy, proven to be 99% effective in postponing pregnancy when used properly. It’s based on an awareness of a woman’s fertility.

What are the advantages to NFP?

It’s 100% natural, 100% safe, has no health risks, and is morally acceptable. Couples report that NFP has a positive effect on their marriages.

What Couples Are Saying

“It’s been nearly two years now since my wife Kathleen and I took our NFP class with you.  I can’t tell you enough about the powerful ways that NFP has worked in our marriage.  We have definitely experienced a great sense of freedom since leaving the pill behind.”
— SS, Chicago, Illinois

“My husband and I have been practicing NFP since we were married a little over a year ago. We love it and would never practice anything else.”
— S.P., CA

Todd and Julie give their testimony.


“We both really appreciate knowing what my body is up to. We also appreciate the tone and diction of The Art of Natural Family Planning.”
— K.S., WV

“I want to thank you for what you have brought into my life. I was on the Pill, and while I was happy with its effectiveness, something was missing. I now feel so much healthier — physically and spiritually.”
— K., VA

“…we successfully used NFP to achieve our first pregnancy and now have a beautiful 9 month old girl, Annie Rose. As a high school science teacher I was amazed at how much I didn’t know about my own body, and was grateful to find an alternative lifestyle that was rooted in my Catholic beliefs.”
— Chicago-area couple
