About Rosemarie

Hello, I am Rosemarie Vandenbrink. My personal and family experiences with reproductive and gynaecological health issues have made me passionate about teaching the CREIGHTON MODEL FertilityCare™ System (CrMS).

Why did I call my practice “Family Health FertilityCare™"? I chose this name because a woman’s health is intimately linked to the health of her family. I know how my health affected my family.

I have been married to my best friend Jerry since 1980. We are parents of five children - four born between 1982 and 1990. In 1991 at the age of 34, I miscarried our fifth child who is now in heaven.

Throughout my reproductive life, I had severe menstrual cramps and very heavy menstrual periods. My abnormal heavy bleeding continued to worsen. I finally agreed to have a hysterectomy, which diagnosed the cause of my bleeding as adenomyosis.

I believe if my doctors had directed me to a CrMS Practitioner, the biomarkers of my menstrual cycle would have led to a proper diagnosis and treatment. I also believe my 4 surgeries could have been prevented. My prayer is that by teaching this system of women’s health (and family health), I can spare you and your family some of what my family and I went through.
