Natural Family Planning and Ecological Breastfeeding

Sunday, April 7th, 2019

Why am I doing this? I have been blogging for NFP International for 13 years.  Sometimes I wonder why I bother writing a blog for NFP International. Is it really important to spend time promoting eco-breastfeeding for spacing births?  Who cares?  Well, we do.  In the NFP International mission, we think it is important to teach this form of breastfeeding which spaces babies without abstinence and offers so many benefits to both mother and baby.

That is why we bother and frequently blog on this topic.

We are also in need of donations so this ministry can continue.  I am a volunteer.  So is my husband.  But we also have a full-time, hard-working Executive Director.  Please consider donating this Lenten season.

Thank you,

The Role of Natural Family Planning International

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

This organization, NFPI, shares the founders’ 47 years of experience with teaching natural family planning and explaining morality in a way that ordinary people can understand. The content of our triple-strand approach to natural family planning is unique within the NFP movement.

Ecological breastfeeding provides a wonderful combination of health benefits for mother and baby, the emotional benefits of attachment parenting, and the natural spacing of babies. It is truly part of God’s plan for families. Only ecological breastfeeding with its Seven Standards provides a significant spacing of babies. Most couples can use ecological breastfeeding to space the births of their children and then use systematic NFP when they have a sufficiently serious reason for additional spacing or avoiding pregnancy.

The covenant theology of human sexuality provides an easy-to-grasp way to understand and internalize God’s plan for love, marriage and sexuality. The knowledge that the sex act ought to symbolize the commitment of marriage provides meaning and motivation to postpone the “marriage act” until marriage. The knowledge that within marriage it ought to be a renewal of the marriage covenant provides deep meaning to this expression of married love. It also provides a challenge to spouses to maintain an attitude of caring love and gratitude throughout every aspect of their life together.

The Kippley-Prem Method of systematic NFP provides couples with maximum freedom of choice and minimum abstinence.

The NFP Home Study Course is Inexpensive and Informative!

The NFP Home Study Course is Inexpensive and Informative!

The NFPI Home Study Course receives excellent evaluations form those couples who have taken the course. It is also half the cost of most other NFP programs. More content for less cost.  As a volunteer, I enjoy teaching these couples.  Below are recent comments from those couples who have finished the course in October 2018.

I feel that I have learned a great deal about using my body’s physical signs to understand and track fertility. I also have a greater understanding of the Church’s beliefs regarding fertility practices.

The info given to us over the past few weeks has been thorough. This course was very eye-opening to the world of NFP but also to the marriage covenant we are about to enter into.

This course was very informative and easy to follow. We have benefited from taking this course.

Thank you for all your help! The course was amazing.

We learned more about how to observe the fertility signs to increase our chances of pregnancy. As well as the necessary steps and challenges that follow. I would definitely say that both my fiancé and I have learned something from this course that we did not previously understand.

I’ve gained new knowledge from taking this course and have learned a lot.

There is a lot we did not know when it comes to performing natural family planning. I was not aware that the practices we had been performing was not what God has planned for us.
