“Taking Back the Terms”

Welcome to Lotus Flower FertilityCare! I’m so glad you’re here! I am a Creighton Practitioner, which means I teach women and couples how to chart their cycles so they can confidently monitor their fertility for avoiding or achieving pregnancy and monitor their health.

The Creighton chart is the foundation of NaProTechnology (aka Napro), a women’s health medical and surgical science. Not all women will need the medical extension of NaProTechnology. I am trained to identify risk factors on the chart (for things like low progesterone, PMS, infertility, miscarriage risk, endometriosis, thyroid dysfunction, etc.) and refer women to a Napro Medical Consultant who uses the chart to direct further assessment and treatment if necessary. None of them prescribe birth control. All treatments cooperate with the woman’s body. 

“Mary is a fabulous teacher!”

“Mary has been great! I’ve been through a lot of stress lately and she’s been super supportive and helpful with all of it!”

“I always feel motivated and heard.”

Choice. Women’s rights. Reproductive rights. Women’s health. Empowerment.

These words are tossed around in our culture like bean bags in a backyard game. Many have been convinced that these terms mean providing unopposed access to birth control.

But as Inigo Montoya said in The Princess Bride, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

A woman has a right to the knowledge of how her body works, specifically her fertility and its connection to her overall health.

A woman has a right to understand the science behind birth control, how it effects her mind and body, and that she actually has multiple choices.

When we understand these things, we are truly empowered to make fully informed decisions about our fertility and women’s healthcare.

I started an outreach called “Taking Back the Terms” in 2015 in hopes of taking back these terms which have been drastically misused and misunderstood. I started a YouTube channel, now with 66 videos and growing to give people access to the good news about God’s design of human fertility and superior healthcare that many are unaware of.

Like many others, I had experienced increasing pain and heavy bleeding starting in my teenage years and was subtly convinced that this was “normal.” Access to knowledge of my fertility (creightonmodel.com) and restorative healthcare (Naprotechnology.com) at a young age would’ve provided me with pain relief much sooner, and might have been the difference in my ability to bear children.

I began speaking on this topic as I started this outreach and then began studying to become a Creighton Model Practitioner in 2018. My hopes are to particularly impact teens, but also women of all ages, empowering them with this priceless knowledge of fertility awareness (NFP refreshed) and how God has designed and planned for us to live fulfilled, regardless of the condition of our fertility and our present plans to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

This experience has inspired my outreach and is one of many avenues that God has provided to give purpose to my pain. Please follow me on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram @TakingBacktheTerms to help me share this valuable information with others that it can help.

FABM Base is a new non-profit organization started by myself and Emily Frase @totalwhine.com. Our website is coming soon!
