Learning Programme

For anyone who is interested to learn more about the Creighton Model we recommend that you contact us to discuss your specific situation and what we can offer to help you.

At the end of the phone conversation you can decide to attend a face-to-face Initial Consultation, which is usually given to the client in a private setting. We especially ask the gentlemen to attend this consultation.  At the end of this session you can decide whether or not you would like to come onto the programme.

If you decide to come onto the programme then you will begin the Initial Learning Phase (also known as Phase 1 by other service providers):

  • You start using FertilityCare from day 1.
  • You learn via one-to-one confidential Follow-Up Sessions with your dedicated teacher, also known as a FertilityCare practitioner. The gentlemen are optional in these sessions but they are most welcome.
  • The follow-up sessions may be conducted via either face-to-face meetings or video conferencing (via skype), at a time and location that is most suitable for both the client and the practitioner.  Currently we can see clients in central London (near Tottenham Court Road), south-west London, north-west London, Sheffield, Yorkshire and Guernsey (one of the Channel Islands).
  • Each follow-up session takes 1.5 hours.  All of our working ladies come to learn after their work hours.
  • Each client with a regular menstrual cycle will need to attend 5 follow-up sessions in order to complete the Initial Learning Phase of the programme.
  • Your Initial Learning Phase may require more follow-up sessions and / or may take longer to complete if you do not have a regular menstrual cycle or you suffer from certain medical conditions.
  • Depending on your situation you may be referred to our medical consultants on NaproTECHNOLOGY, or NaPro, which can run in parallel with your Initial Learning Phase of FertilityCare.
  • Once you have completed your Initial Learning Phase of the programme you are encouraged to attend Ongoing Follow-Up Sessions, usually every 3 cycles. This is particularly important if you are under the care of our NaPro consultants.
  • For NaPro consultations – the fees payable to a Napro medical consultation are in addition to the fees payable to the FertilityCare practitioner, which are detailed below.  Please ask your FertilityCare practitioner for further details regarding the NaPro consultants in the UK and their fees.
