Natural Family Planning: Church Bulletin Announcements

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Below are two church bulletin announcements which we encourage you to send to your parish to insert in the church bulletin once a month.  You can be an NFPI promoter in your community.  You can also add your name and phone number at the end of each announcement should someone want to get more information.  (“For more information, call _______ at ___________.”)  We thank you for any promotional help you can provide.  John and Sheila Kippley

Natural Family Planning (NFP) instruction at your pace at home with the Home Study Course of NFP International, with guidance by a live teacher.

  • Crosschecking signs of fertility for great confidence and effectiveness.
  • Ecological Breastfeeding’s natural baby spacing and other benefits for mom and baby.
  • A bible-based theology that explains Catholic teaching on marital morality in a way that leads many Christians to say, “That makes sense.”
  • Safe, healthy, effective and Catholic.
  • Suggested donation of $70 is less than the cost of a typical bridal bouquet. See

If space is very limited, this announcement can be used:

NFP Charting Saves Money

Monday, November 28th, 2016

A practical use of charting: 

In one case, expectant parents used it to persuade their physician to keep waiting.  The baby’s head size was large for his gestational age, and the doctor wanted to induce immediately.  The woman, however, had delivered other babies with large heads, and she trusted her temperature graph that indicated the baby wasn’t due for another six weeks.  Faced with the above facts and the above article by an expert published in a medical magazine plus the possibility of inducing labor up to two months prematurely, the doctor decided to wait on a week by week basis.  The baby came naturally within three days of the temperature-based Estimated Date of Childbirth based on Dr. Konald Prem’s formula with no signs of being post-mature, a good six weeks after the time originally planned for induced labor.

In another case, we helped a couple win a battle with their insurance company.  The husband was in a new job.  The insurance company did not cover delivery expenses of babies conceived before employment.  The couple waited patiently until they knew they were covered, but the baby was born prematurely and had additional medical expenses.  Armed with their dated temperature graphs and the above information, they were able to persuade the insurance company that the baby was conceived on company time, so to speak.  The dated temperature graph of their pregnancy cycle saved them thousands of dollars.   Be sure to keep good records.  Good charts may save a couple money.
