Elizabeth Ministry celebrates the blessings of fertility and comforts those facing the
frustration of infertility. We know that the journey to conception can sometimes be
difficult and confusing. We offer information and support for couples desiring to better
understand the amazing design of God's gift of fertility.

INFERTILITY- About 12 percent of women (7.3 million) in the United States have
difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a baby to term, causing devastating grief for some
couples. We offer prayer, fertility blessings, support groups and information on infertility
treatment options. Today’s assisted reproductive technology is tempting, however, most
of the procedures are against Catholic teaching. We help couples connect with health
care workers who are trained in Naprotechnology. This method follows Catholic teaching
and has a higher success rate than IVF.

FERTILITY AWARENESS & NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING LEARN MORE- NFP students
learn the functions of the reproductive aspect of sexuality, which prepares them to have a
better understanding of the scientific principles of the natural methods. With this, they
will be better able to fully appreciate the wonderful gift of fertility and sexuality.

Less than 5% of couples who use Natural Family Planning have marriages which end in
divorce. Natural Family Planning is 97-99% effective when used to avoid pregnancy and
can assist those wanting to conceive. For more info see our brochure to the right.
