Creighton Method Book?
 
I would like to learn the Creighton Method since I'm BF right now and don't think the sympto-thermal thing will work so great for us at the moment. I know that you are supposed to take a class to learn the Creighton Method, but we just don't have the money for it right now. :( Do any of you know if there's a book that I can get from the library or some other way to learn this method? Thanks in advance for any ideas!

That book tells you about the Creighton Model and NaProTechnology but doesn't teach you the method. There is a user manual that is given to couples when they start the method, but it's really designed just to supplement the info given by the teachers. I know that its tempting to learn by just reading a book but the teacher really provides very valuable insights - your effectiveness in using the system will be reduced if you try it on your own. One of the big benefits of the Creighton Model is the rigorous training for the teachers and the close support they provide the couples. Many teachers are willing to reduce their fees in the case of financial need.

Had to come back to this thread and update what I am learning.

1- I NEED a teacher, so if anyone knows of one that will do distance options, please pm me.
2- this is the real deal. Two children and a nurse and the light stuff talked about in the book is beyond me, it is heavy stuff that no book could get you through.
3- I guess if you are just set on not paying for classes, which honestly at 240 for what you get, is NOT, nearly enough to compensate these instructors, you could look into the Billings method.
4- CrM is as effective as it is for a reason.

During BF, creighton teaches to rely primarily on the internal observations since temps are all over the place and the cycle is basically erratic to non-existent. ie cervical position/opening/firmness and cervical mucous...

Thanks for the affirmation of the Creighton Model and the value its teachers provide :)

Sorry to disagree with you, but as a Creighton teacher I can assure you that the Creighton Model never uses internal observations (or temps for that matter). The only observations that are ever done are external observations of mucus. That is all that is needed for the high effectiveness (even while breastfeeding). Perhaps you are confusing Creighton with another method.

oh! sorry I was looking it up as I was curious about creighton, and came across a forum where a woman said that is what she was taught...
