Helping families, parishes, and dioceses navigate fertility with faith.
NFP? FABMs? STM?
NFP or Natural Family Planning is the general term for natural and moral methods of family planning in the Catholic Church, inspired by the encyclical Humanae Vitae.
NFP is essentially fertility awareness because it is a means of reading the body’s natural signs of fertility and infertility. A married couple’s virtuous application of this knowledge either to try to achieve a pregnancy or to postpone a pregnancy is called responsible parenthood.
FABMs stands for Fertility Awareness Based Methods. In a Catholic context, it is often used to refer to multiple forms of moral NFP methods in line with Theology of the Body and Church teaching.
STM (sympto-thermal method) is the specific method of NFP or a FABM that CCL and Liga use to teach to couples.
Couple to Couple League is dedicated to promote and teach fertility awareness (natural family planning) to married and engaged couples for over 50 years. Liga de Pareja a Pareja is the branch of CCL focusing on Spanish Speaking Couples. Fertility Science Institute is a method-neutral outreach, going beyond Catholic couples and teaches fertility awareness to all faiths, single women and even offers programs for families. PeakDay is our new App that is used to chart across these programs.
