NFP- Natural Fertility Planning

Now both of them were naked the man and his wife, but they felt no shame before each other’ Gen 2;25

Thanks to the many fertility apps available, contemporary families have countless choices. The fertility awareness scheme on offer, is an opportunity for couples to understand further the physiology of their bodies, in the joy of the total gift of self, in marriage. The scientifically proven methods proposed to couples to plan their families are being used successfully by many families and being increasingly sought after, for health reasons amongst others. The initiative proposed here simply adds to the many choices already available which allows families to make informed decisions.

Period Piece is the brainchild of modern historian Alana Harris who is based at King’s College London. Harris wanted to explore the natural rhythms of women’s bodies and how people try to control them by working with them or using technology to manipulate them. She is particularly struck that the efforts of previous generations to control women’s reproduction – whether through basic technology such as condoms or a more complex, chemical methods such as the pill – are being increasingly rejected by young people, who are turning to fertility apps, which monitor temperature changes in the body caused by ovulation. “The pill was once seen as liberation for women,” said Harris, “but my students are turning their back on it, concerned about its impact on their physical and mental health. It’s part of a new focus on clean eating and living.”
