Sacred Heart Major Seminary | Detroit | 6:30-8:30pm
Driven by the call of Humanae Vitae to doctors and men of science, the Creighton Model is a natural method of observing biological signs of fertility that can be used for achieving or avoiding pregnancy, as well as identify health risks.  In cooperation with NaProTECHNOLOGY, the Creighton Model assists in identifying and treating infertility, PCOS, endometriosis, painful menstruation, unusual bleeding, migraines, depression, and much more. It is truly a whole-person system of care that respects the dignity of women, and the sanctity of human life.  This introduction is open to single women, married or engaged couples, clergy, religious, and seminarians interested in learning more about the Creighton Model and how it is practiced for the purposes of monitoring and evaluating a woman's reproductive and gynecologic health. Space at this presentation is limited. Pre-registration is required. Please register
