NFNZ is a national Association of trained and continuously up-dated Fertility Educators who have undergone an extensive training programme in Natural Family Planning methods. Fertility Educators provide education on Fertility Awareness and teach Natural Family Planning to individuals, couples, medical and health professionals along with providing group education.
Our Fertility Educators generally come from a medical or health professional background. After a 12 month training programme that includes a clinical practice component, all Educators undergo a regular full clinical audit and are re-accredited to NFNZ annually. NFNZ is committed to the on-going training of its Educators through training days and monthly updates about medical advances and relevant scientific research.
NFNZ Educators hold clinics and/or provide home visits in most main centres throughout New Zealand and many also provide Skype consultations nationally and internationally for those clients living outside of serviced areas. Group Education is also provided throughout much of New Zealand.
