String.Contains Count?

Can anyone point me in the direction of functionality that will provide the number of times a String contains a given substring? Preferably in C# and/or built in to the .Net framework...

There's probably a better way to do this (Such as the overloads for .IndexOf()... ) but whatever.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string n="freddrandr";
  3. int count=0;
  4. for(int i=0;i<n.length;i++)
  5. {
  6.    if (n.SubString(i).StartsWith("dr"))
  7.    {
  8.       count++;
  9.    } 
  10. }
  11. //count will be 2

For anyone interested, this is what I ended up using:
public Int32 ContainsCount(String SearchPhrase, String SearchText) {
String Remains = SearchText;
Int32 NewIndex = 0;
Int16 Count = 0;
while (Remains.Length >= SearchPhrase.Length)
NewIndex = Remains.IndexOf(SearchPhrase);
if (NewIndex >= 0)
Remains = Remains.Substring(NewIndex + SearchPhrase.Length);
return Count;
return Count;
