In celebration of Fertility Care Week, March 24-28, the Friends of Fertility Care of Philadelphia will present a screening of the film “A Quiet Revolution” will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 25 at Immaculate Conception Church, Jenkintown.
The documentary film explains the health science of Natural Procreative Technology (NaPro) as a natural family planning alternative to birth control and in-vitro fertilization as a treatment for infertility.
After the film Dr. Monique Ruberu, the only obstetrics/genecology physician trained in NaPro technology in the Philadelphia area, will engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to share thoughts about women’s fertility health care.
Registration for the event is available at the organization’s website.

It’s not very often that we hear about natural methods of birth control in our culture, because there’s no profit to be made from it. They can be a healthy alternative to the artificial methods that have so many side effects. If our health care system were not so profit-oriented, it would be promoting the truth about natural methods of birth control:
1. Natural methods are safe. There are no side effects, because they don’t create dangerous hormonal imbalances that wreak havoc with the female body.
2. Natural methods are effective. When properly used, the most effective natural methods have a failure rate comparable to the Pill.
3. Natural methods are cheap. All you need is a thermometer and an app for your Smartphone.
4. Natural methods put women in touch with their bodies. They operate in harmony with the natural processes of the female body rather than against them.
5. Natural methods promote communication and cooperation between the sexes. By doing so, they can increase the harmony of the family.
6. Natural methods don’t reduce pleasure or intimacy the way that condoms do.
