9780857460837: Living with Infertility - a Christian Perspective: The Search for Peace and Hope

'This book is not about living through infertility, as though this was a tunnel on the way to some ultimate destination of child-bearing. It is about living within infertility, continuing to have a spiritual life, and doing something more than simply sitting around waiting for a baby. My experience of infertility did terrible things to my relationship with God. I was angry and disappointed; I felt forgotten by God. But it didn't have to feel like that. God was with me even then. God does know the pain of infertility and childlessness. He has been here before us, he is sharing this sorrow with us, and he already knows how this story will end.' Reading a book doesn't actually change things. It won't help you get what you want, nor will it stop you wanting it - but it can help to change you. New ideas and new ways of looking at old ideas can help you discover a different point of view. Whether you are going through infertility yourself, or supporting a friend or family member, this book brings the Christian experience of infertility into the wider context of the story of life with God.

About the Author:

Rosemary Morgan is a Baptist lay preacher, writing from experience of infertility. From 2005 - 2009 she worked in Great Malvern Priory and retains links there; from 2006 to 2010 she was a Deacon at Malvern Baptist Church and she now attends Biggleswade Baptist Church.

Review:

I married late, on my 36th birthday, and consequently began 'trying for a baby' at an age when fertility is already dramatically decreasing. When nothing happened, I had a severe breakdown with the stress of it all. I wish I'd had this book then. I only had two years of the pain of infertility (though the birth of our 'miracle' son was not the end of our struggles!). For many, infertility is a much longer sentence, perhaps a lifetime one. In this valuable book, Rosemary Morgan travels that lonely path with women (and men) who long for a child but fear they will never reach the light at the end of the tunnel. With great compassion and also down to earth advice, she seeks for spiritual comfort in the experience of infertility and finds a God who is with us in all our frustration, jealousy, anger and despair. At last a Christian has written on this subject on which churches often keep an embarrassed silence. I hope many will find renewed strength, hope and acceptance in this book, and that as a result the topic will be one Christians feel free to talk about. Veronica Zundel
