John and Sheila Kippley have done it again! Anyone wanting an accurate and thorough treatment of ecological breastfeeding, natural child spacing, and systematic natural family planning will only need to buy this one inexpensive book. My husband and I, both Registered Nurses, appreciate the current research and the easy-read format. The broad moral foundations included in the book made us appreciate the goodness of NFP even more. We have used this family planning method for years and we are excited that others can now learn about this delightful way of life.

This book was very informative. It was written in such a way that when I first got it I could read right through it to get myself familiar with the method and then is easy enough to look up specifics when I am not sure about something. I also love that they give more than one group of rules to follow because every woman is different and some signs might be easier for one woman to see than another. I also liked that this book was from the Catholic perspective and being able to know that what is taught in the book is not going against Church doctrine.

Lots of good information! I bought this and the TCOYF book by Toni Weschler. I found this book a little more helpful and the rules more clear, especially for special cases such as coming off hormonal birthcontrol. It is nice to have both as references though!

A little dry but very informative. My husband and I have conceived 4 children using this method and using this book as a guide. We've also managed to space them 2 and 3 years apart! My youngest is 15 mo, so we are trying to slow down the baby train at this point and wouldn't dream of putting any sort of abortifacent in my body (i.e. the pill, iud -hormone or copper, shot, etc). Educate yourself and read the fine print of your prescriptions!

I have read a few different books on NFP, and so far this one is by far the best from a Catholic view. In fact, it is the only one I have read so far that takes an entirely Catholic approach (as opposed to practicing NFP for all natural, holistic purposes). If you want to know more about NFP because you want to follow the Church's teaching, then this book is a must read. The beginning portion of the book is invaluable to a Catholic wanting to further understand the reason why the Church does not allow artificial contraception, and even helps one to discern whether you are practicing NFP for the right reasons. The book uses some biblical references to explain the Church's position, in addition to other sources.

As someone who teaches RCIA and an occasional pre-cana class, I am happy to have found this book. It will help me answer some of the tough questions people ask regarding NFP, Church teaching, and the marital relationship.

However, I found this book to be the most confusing I have read on its explanation of how to chart your cycles. If it was the first one I had read, I think I would have been too intimidated to try NFP. Having already begun charting when I found this book, I still found the various "rules" to be overwhelming. There are many methods of NFP out there and rather than teaching one method, they try to give you the basics of each one. It just comes off as confusing.

My husband and I learned this method of Natural Family Planning using this book, and have been able to successfully plan our family without using things that will harm our body or others. I learned a lot and loved how the book broke down the process in an easy to understand manner. Not only that, there is a whole group of users who can provide support and their contact info is in the book.

Well thought out. Takes you from being a beginner at NFP all the way through breast-feeding and spacing children. Great Q & A format. Highly recommend.

This book is okay, not my favorite. I may have gotten more out of the book if I would have taken the course (as intended). I self taught myself out of the TCOYF (highly recommend) and I just like the TCOYF way of charting better, but everyone has their own charting preferences.
