Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

Physicians and employees at Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center (PSMEMC) attended a recent open house for the new FertilityCare Center to learn more about its services meet the staff and tour the facility.

The facility is located at Presence Saint Elizabeth Hospital, 1431 N. Claremont Ave., Chicago, fourth floor. The center features a team of specialists, including a certified fertility care practitioner, medical consultant and other physicians at PSMEMC.

The center offers patients the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System (CrMS), which helps couples understand when they are naturally fertile, and infertile, which can help them manage efforts to avoid or achieve pregnancy. The fertility-awareness based program relies upon standard observation and charting of biological markers to understand a woman’s health. Fertility awareness is an alternative to hormonal birth control or other medications to treat disorders. The approach is consistent with Catholic teaching.
