Infertility quotes

A selection that I plan to build up slowly from blogs, books and poems. Source always credited.

1.

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.

Euripides, Iphigenia in Aulis, c. 405 B.C.

2.

Every aspect of my being was challenged: my self-worth, my femininity, my profession, my marriage, my faith.

3.

I am angry. I feel abandoned. I used to pray for a baby. I have stopped doing that b/c I don’t feel like I have a right to ask. What have I done for God lately? We haven’t been to church for months. I have a few excuses – I mean reasons – for this, but it really always boils down to my anger if I’m being honest. And if I’m being totally honest, I miss God…so much it makes me ache. I miss having faith to take comfort in.
