An Integrated Approach to Women's Reproductive HealthNaproTECHNOLOGY

We set the standard for healthcare in our community. That's why Saint Joseph Health System (SJHS) is now offering NaProTECHNOLOGY, a new breakthrough in women's reproductive & gynecologic health science.


Natural Procreative Technology (NaProTECHNOLOGY, or NPT) provides women a highly reliable, precise alternative to traditional medical approaches. This fertility care-based approach bridges family planning with reproductive health monitoring and maintenance, and is based on 30 years of scientific research. Dr. Parker, who specializes in medical & surgical NaProTECHNOLOGY, works with women and couples to determine the underlying cause of the issue in order to restore the normal physiologic function of the menstrual and fertility cycles. NPT targets specific reproductive health needs, including:

Infertility Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Hormonal abnormalities Post-partum depression
Endometriosis Natural birth regulation
Repetitive miscarriage Ovarian cysts
Menstrual cramps Prematurity prevention

Unlike common approaches, NPT works cooperatively with a woman's procreative and gynecologic systems. Using the patient's Creighton Model FertilityCare System charting, NPT is able to identify the underlying problems, then work to correct the conditions. This is all done without the use of contraceptives and helps to sustain the patient's procreative potential.To learn more about NaProTECHNOLOGY call 574.335.6440.

Creighton Model FertilityCareTM System (CrMS) 

The Saint Joseph FertilityCare Center at SJHS provides our community with education and consultation on holistic and highly effective options for family planning. Women of all ages can receive personalized education on the CrMS. As a woman charts her cycle, the CrMS telegraphs abnormalities in her health, allowing her physician to identify and treat numerous women's health issues.

Through the monitoring and charting of the woman's biomarkers, a couple is able to identify when they are naturally fertile or infertile, and receive support from the Center in practicing natural family planning. By combining the Creighton Model FertilityCare System with medical or surgical NaProTECHNOLOGY, a woman has access to cutting-edge evaluation and treatment.
