Who we are

The Couple to Couple League (CCL) is an international, Catholic, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and teaching fertility awareness (natural family planning) to married and engaged couples. It is essentially a volunteer organization because services are provided by professionally-trained volunteers who are supported by a small staff at the international headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio. Local Chapters of the organization consist mainly of certified Teaching Couples and Promoters, along with other supportive members.

Our approach

CCL has a three-fold approach to teaching NFP:

    1. The full Sympto-Thermal Method of NFP.
    2. The moral underpinnings for the NFP decision.
    3. The promotion of exclusive and continued breastfeeding and its effect on fertility.
