Natural Family Planning CM-BBT Program - LIVE VIRTUAL CLASS


The Natural Family Planning CM-BBT program is a scientifically based, medical program designed for couples who wish to postpone, avoid or achieve pregnancy naturally.

This method compliments the unique design and function of the human reproductive system. During this three-hour live virtual class, participants learn how to observe, chart and interpret the woman’s cervical mucus signs and basal body temperature, in order to determine the fertility of each day of the menstrual cycle. This information will empower couples to make decisions regarding the timing of intercourse, based on their family planning motivation. This method is extremely reliable when used consistently and according to the guidelines.

During the training period, the woman will record and self-interpret her cycle, then submit it for interpretation by a Registered Nurse with specialized training as a CM-BBT Professional. The goal of the Natural Family Planning CM-BBT program is for couples to become independent in the use of the method, which most are able to achieve within a year.

CM-BBT has been used successfully by women who are breastfeeding, have recently given birth and are formula feeding, have irregular cycles, are experiencing signs of perimenopause, or simply desire to increase their body awareness.

Natural Family Planning does not provide protection from sexually transmitted infections, HIV or AIDS.

Engaged couples are encouraged to attend an instruction session 3-6 months before their wedding when possible. For couples who wish to use this method following the birth of a baby, class attendance is recommended 4-8 weeks prior to the due date. The cost of this program, including Your Guide to the Natural Family Planning CM-BBT Program, a thermometer, charts, and interpretation service is $125.00 for the female. The male is strongly encouraged to attend (at no additional cost), but his attendance is not mandatory.

Here are some important guidelines for this virtual program:
