Fertility First

The experts in conception and contraception, naturally

What We Do


By learning about your menstrual cycle and signs of fertility you can use this information to help you conceive, avoid pregnancy or learn more about your fertility and menstrual cycle. No fancy devices are needed, just a pen, digital thermometer, a fertility chart and individualised teaching from a Fertility First Fertility Educator.

Fertility First offers education in fertility, the menstrual cycle and natural family planning methods to women and their partners, health professionals and community groups.

We teach only the scientifically proven Sympto-Thermal Method and the Lactational Amenorrhoea Methods of Natural Family Planning as approved by the World Health Organisation.

Our Fertility Educators are accredited with Natural Fertility New Zealand.
