The Creighton Model FertilityCare System

More about the Mission

The CrMS is based upon a couple’s knowledge and understanding of their naturally-occurring phases of fertility and infertility. Through this understanding, the couple is able to make decisions (choices) regarding the achievement or avoidance of pregnancy. This system provides information which deals with the complete dimension of the procreative ability. In addition, it provides women the added benefit of being able to monitor and maintain their procreative and gynecologic health over a lifetime. It is truly the only family planning system which has networked family planning with gynecologic and procreative healthcare and health maintenance. The teachers of the CrMS are trained allied health professionals and specifically-trained physicians have been educated to incorporate the CrMS into their medical practice.

Shannon Vitali is a nurse at OSF HealthCare, St. Anthony’s Health Center in Alton, Illinois. She has been teaching the Creighton Model FertilityCare System for the past 2.5 years. It is her goal to help all women understand and value their fertility. It was from teaching the Creighton Model that lead to her involvement with the Luncheons4Life. She has been a coordinator with Joan Kane in the St Louis Metro East area since its inception in September of 2018. It is from her exposure with those she has met at the Luncheons4Life that has ignited her passion to stand up and fight for the end to the demand for abortions and actively participate in the 40 Days for Life campaigns in Granite City, IL.

Shannon was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She and her husband Richard have been married for 34 years. They have 6 children- one daughter and five sons. They have lived in Alton for the past 17 years where they are active in their church and community.

Shannon was an elementary school teacher in Las Vegas and after getting married she taught in Pasadena, California. They then moved to New Jersey to be closer to her recently widowed mother in law. There Shannon went back to school to get her special education certification and began teaching at a special needs school. After the birth of her fourth child, she left teaching to care for her growing family.

When she felt called to return to the work force full time, she went to nursing school and became a nurse on the OB unit at St. Anthony’s in Alton, IL. She worked in OB until its closing at the end of 2018. In addition to teaching the Creighton Model FertilityCare System, Shannon works in Pre-Surgical Testing.
