God's sovereignty, infertility, nursing, presence, suffering



  1. Schoonover-Shoffner, Kathy


ABSTRACT: Infertility, the inability to conceive and/or carry a baby to term, is an agonizing experience for many. Both the experience and pain of infertility are ancient, shared by women and men of the Bible and by couples today. An insider's look into infertility can help nurses understand the suffering that occurs, suggest what can be said and done that can be helpful as well as hurtful, and offer insight into what can be gained personally and spiritually through the experience of infertility.
