St. Philomena novena for pregnancy

Young St. Philomena has been such a powerful intercessor, she’s actually the only saint who was canonized on the grounds of intercession alone. While miracles have been reported regarding a whole span of requests, she’s known as the patroness of babies, infants, and youth. It’s unsurprising, then, that she’s taken a special place in hearts of many infertile couples desperately longing to grow their family.

Whatever your intention (but especially if you or a loved one is struggling with fertility!), Philomena’s your gal. This novena (nine days of consecutive, focused prayer) can be prayed at any time, but if you want to end on her feast day, you should recite the novena once a day, beginning on August 3rd.

If you get a late start or forget a day, don’t let that discourage you pressing on! Novenas aren’t some magic formula that bring about change, but an ongoing nine-day conversation with a saint asking him/her to pray for an specific intention. Just like a missed phone call shouldn’t prevent you from talking to your mom, a missed day of a novena shouldn’t stop you from asking the Communion of Saints to raise your prayers up to God!

Dearest St. Philomena, your prayers are powerful because you are so close to Our Lord. Your child-like faith and devotion are an inspiration to all of the faithful. Many miracles have occurred as a result of your intercession. In your closeness to Our Lord, please lift up these my intentions in prayer…

(state your intentions)

St. Philomena, at such a young age, you gave everything to Jesus to be come a consecrated virgin for the Kingdom. Giving even more, you gave your live as you suffered a martyr’s death to preserve your gift to our Lord. Pray for me, that I might have the same faith and willingness to accept God’s will no matter the cost.

Unleashing the power of a woman's cycle

NaProTECHNOLOGY (Natural Procreative Technology) is a new women's health science that monitors and maintains a woman's reproductive and gynecological health. It provides medical and surgical treatments that cooperate completely with the reproductive system.

Thirty years of scientific research in the study of the normal and abnormal states of the menstrual and fertility cycles have unraveled their mysteries.

Real Solutions to Real Problems:

  • Infertility

  • Menstrual cramps

  • Premenstrual syndrom (PMS)

  • Ovarian Cysts

  • Irregular or abnormal bleeding

  • Polycystic ovarian disease 

  • Repetitive miscarriage

  • Postpartum depression

  • Prematurity prevention

  • Hormonal abnormalities

  • Chronic discharges

  • Other health problems

This is the first women's health science to network family planning with reproductive health monitoring and maintenance. It is a fertility-care based medical approach rather than a fertility-control approach to family planning and gynecological health.

NaProTECHNOLOGY uses the Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System biomarkers to monitor easily and objectively the occurrence of various hormonal events during the menstrual cycle. NaProtracking provides valid information that can be interpreted by a woman and by physicians who are specifically trained in this system.

Unlike common suppressive or destructive approaches, NaProTECHNOLOGY works cooperatively with the procreative and gynecologic systems. When these systems function abnormally, NaProTECHNOLOGY identifies the problems and cooperates with the menstrual and fertility cycles that correct the condition, maintain the human ecology, and sustain the procreative potential.

Women now have an opportunity to know and understand the causes of the symptoms from which they suffer.
