From Library Journal 

Infertility, suffered by an estimated ten million people each year, is carefully depicted from both the woman's and the man's perspective. The authors describe various stages in the struggle with infertility, the feelings of loss and grief, the isolation from friends with children, the various solutions the couple may try, and the marital issues that may arise before the couple is able to accept childlessness. This book helps both infertile couples and their families and friends see that infertility is not simply a physical condition but is also an emotional syndrome which affects others as well as the couple. Recommended especially for public libraries but useful for seminary libraries as well.
