Dr. Thomas Hilgers is the reproductive specialist who created the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System and NaProTechnology. He has worked for over 30 years to share this amazing medical breakthrough with women, couples and doctors throughout the world. I wanted to share with you some articles that have been written in the mainstream media about the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System, NaProTechnology and Dr. Hilgers.

Catholic Fertility Methods Help Chicago Woman Conceive
This most recent article appeared in the Chicago Tribune on July 30, 2012. The article is about Mary-Louise Hengesbaugh and her struggle with infertility. She chose to seek treatment through NaProTechnology.
Excerpts from the article: “Being a serious Catholic, I do not believe in IVF or (artificial insemination),” said Hengesbaugh. “What a joy to remain true to God’s plan and experience this miracle.”
“With the method we use, we don’t have to go down any road that compromises people’s values. It gives women a lot of peace in knowing what’s wrong with them. We’re actually going to give them answers about why they’re not conceiving and give them a much better success rate and outcome,” states Teresa Kenney, a woman’s health nurse practitioner at the institute in Omaha.

Institute Practices Reproductive Medicine – and Catholicism
This article is not recent but worth sharing. The article discussed the breakthrough of NaProTechnology and the success Dr. Hilgers has had in the treatment of infertility. It also features viewpoints from those that oppose Dr. Hilger’s work. I have to admit that some of the comments from his opponents are humorous. One physician is quoted as saying NaProTechnology is “anti-science”. NaProTechnology has been extensively researched as using modern medical technology and science to diagnose and treat reproductive health problems.
Catherine Keefe, a ob/gyn resident at the time this article was written states the following about NaProTechnology: “This allows me to practice in a way that I see as truly good for my patients and upholds the dignity of life.”
This article is not the most positive I have read about Dr. Hilgers and NaProTechnology, but I am glad to see his work highlighted in the mainstream media. More and more people are searching a safe, moral and effective alternative to IVF and other ART (artificial reproductive technology) and this article helps spread the word about that alternative, NaProTechnology.
