An Afternoon Program for Mothers & Daughters

The pleasure of your company is requested by Mercy Hospital's Department of Fertility Care Services (formerly the Department of Natural Family Planning) at its bi-annual event for mothers and daughters. These events provide an atmosphere of love and learning to discuss fertility and to promote communication between mother and daughter. The programs emphasize respect, understanding and appreciation for God's gift of sexuality as well as age-appropriate information on the function of the female reproductive system.

The 10- to 12-year-old-program focuses on changes in girls' bodies as they enter puberty; modesty; values; plans of action; and the sacredness of human life.

The 13- to 17-year-old program focuses on dating; marriage; sexually transmitted diseases; protection of fertility through chastity; and the sacredness of human life.

Presenters include registered nurses, a physician and other teens who participate on the panel. There is also a confidential question and answer session.
