NFP can change your life and your marriage in incredible ways
Kristin and Austin Riddle:
We first became interested in NFP when many of our friends were talking about it and learning it in preparation for marriage. We were not engaged yet but were discerning the possibility of marriage some day. We decided to attend a class. Austin was pretty skeptical at first, but once the presentation began, it was so interesting he couldn’t stop raising his hand to ask questions. By the end of the introductory session, we had decided to sign up to learn the Creighton Method. We continued to learn and chart during the time of our engagement to monitor Kristen’s fertility, and when we got married we decided to use the method to achieve a pregnancy. We were blessed to conceive quickly and welcomed our first little girl just over 9 months after our wedding! We now have three beautiful girls and a baby boy on the way. We did encounter some difficulty conceiving our third child. But since Kristen was charting we were able to receive prompt help through Dr. Hilgers in Omaha, Nebraska to fix her imbalanced hormones. We also discovered that she has very low progesterone in pregnancy. We were blessed not to loose our first two children to miscarriage. But Kristen had difficulty during the pregnancies with hot flashes and fainting spells. Dr. Hilgers helped her with this by prescribing supplemental progesterone during pregnancy which has greatly helped her symptoms! We are so thankful for NFP and how it has blessed our marriage and our family. Kristen even went to Omaha, Nebraska when she was pregnant with our first child to be trained as a Fertility Care Practitioner and has now been teaching the method to other couples and single women for about 7 years.
