Walking with Moms in Need pregnancy resources

The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother.
~ St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Walking with Moms in Need is a program from the USCCB that St. Thomas More (STM) Parish has implemented to assist pregnant moms and families with information about local resources.

Natural Family Planning/Natural Fertility Awareness

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is fertility awareness for a married couple by observing the body’s signs of fertility and infertility. All methods of NFP track one or more fertility indicator(s) – hormones, cervical mucus, and/or basal body temperature (BBT). It is 100% natural with no drugs, chemicals, or devices. A couple can apply this knowledge to achieve pregnancy or postpone pregnancy.
