Prenatal, Infant, or Child Crisis or Illness- When parents are faced with an infant or
child crisis, they often need to deal with emotional, spiritual, medical, physical,
intellectual, financial, and practical issues. When the fantasy of parenting a “perfect”
child and a “normal” child is shattered, the nightmare of reality can be overwhelming.
Only another parent who has undergone a similar situation can share the depth of this

Contact your local EM Chapter to connect with a mentor experienced in the area of
prenatal, infant, or child crisis or Illness who may be able to assist you with your needs.

Emotions can be overwhelming and the feelings of anxiety and uncertainty can leave
parents desperate for information. Elizabeth Ministry assists parents who face the
many challenges of a child who is sick or has special needs. We offer resources and
