A friend of mine just sent me this link to a new article about napro and the Gianna Center. I try to search Google for articles but they are sometimes hard to find. If you see a new one, please contact me. I always make a post about it and then I add a link to my section on articles.
This is a great article bc it goes through the histroy of the Gianna Center and how they had to adjust when St. Vincent's closed. Now they are part of St. Peter's and have opened up two locations. They are working on opening more.
Here are some quotes from the article.
"Now the Gianna Center is back in its original office in Manhattan,
run by Nolte, and has opened a second office at St. Peter’s Hospital,
run by Dr. Kyle Beiter, an obstetrician-gynecologist who delivers babies
and performs surgery, while specializing in NaPro technology as well.
Under the auspices of St. Peter’s Hospital, the Gianna Center accepts
health-insurance plans again and there are plans afoot to open
additional offices across the country."
“The work of the Gianna Center is totally consistent with our
Catholic principles and our special emphasis on women and children,” Rak
said, pointing out that St. Peter’s Hospital is sponsored by the
Diocese of Metuchen, N.J. “Their approach to medicine fully complements
what we are doing at St. Peter’s, and we are looking to expand these
services beyond the confines of New Jersey. Patients come from very long
distances for their services because they cannot find this kind of care
where they live.”
Although most people think of NFP as only a Catholic Church-approved
method to delay conception, the Gianna Center is serving many women from
across the country who seek help with infertility problems through
Maureen and her husband were married nearly five years without a child when they found
that physicians in their area did not know how to treat infertility in a
morally acceptable way. The Catholic couple rejected in vitro
fertilization, which is prohibited by the Church because it separates
conception from the conjugal act by joining egg and sperm in a petri
dish. The couple found a NaPro family physician in New Jersey, who
eventually referred them to Dr. Beiter at the Gianna Center, where
surgery was performed to treat endometriosis.
Two months after the surgery, Maureen became pregnant. She said that
she and her husband are expecting a child in April, and hope to
have a large family. “You have to trust God,” said Wilkins, who is 30
years old, “because you never know what will happen.”
