Day One: Seven Posts in Seven Days

Jen over at Conversion Diary issued a blogging challenge, and I aim to complete it! I am also stealing her meme.

I have been in a bit of a blogging rut thanks to all the fun we have been having, so I am looking at this week as a way to get back into a routine. It is also the NFP week, so Katie over at NFP and Me is also hosting a link up! (I highly recommend you check out both Jen and Katie's pages.)

I have written on NFP in the past, and I will link to those posts in a moment, but I wanted to take the time today to say again how thankful I am that it is in my life! I am continuously learning about my fertility and the changes I experience as I have children and get older. It is a blessing to be aware of what my body is trying to tell me. One of the hardest things to do each time we make a cross-country move, is say good bye to my NFP-friendly (practicing is more like it!) OBGYNs. I was directly referred this time to another fabulous practice, but once you find genuine care in a doctor, it can be difficult to see it go. So consider this my shout out to all those currently practicing and those in med school that are NFP-friendly: thank you for all your hard work!

Here are some things I have written in the past:

I also wrote a piece for Stacy over at Catholic & Crunchy a few months back on PCOS and STM.

So, that is my story, and if you need any NFP Week graphics, here are some more links! Be sure to check out the Cathofeminism page on Facebook if you haven't already!

  1. Can't wait to see go read the posts that you've linked!

  2. I live in Tampa and found your blog while searching for Doctors who approve of Natural Family Planning. Is there a list somewhere? My current OB/GYN just basically called me an "ignorant teenager" for using Natural Family Planning versus non-hormonal contraception. She wants me to have my "tubes tied" and "uterine ablation" because I have had a stroke and "don't need to get pregnant." I am 44 years old.. not a teenager. This is the fifth time she has treated me this way. Are there any good doctors in Tampa that believe in NFP? Thanks for your help! Glad I found your site... Ironic that is Natural Family Planning week.

    1. There is a site, but the provider that I went to and loved is not listed. Their practice is newly 100% pro life (up until about a year ago they were prescribing HBC but otherwise were Creighton practicing themselves, no sterilizations, etc.) They were out of Plant City though. I lived in Riverview and it was about 15 minutes away, so not so bad drive wise. You can email me for their contact info or you can just look up Women First Center in PLant City. They are now Creighton certified I believe.

    2. Oh, and the site is It does list a few other area providers, but I did not have experience with them.

    3. Amy, I found my NFP doctors (Family practice and NaPRO doctors) here:

  3. Thanks for sharing your links & story, Jess! Loved what I've read so far, can't wait to finish it :)
