“At some point, every woman needs to make peace with her uterus.”
So says Liz Ostler, who has known since she was a child that she would be a mother. It was the fact she based many of her life decisions around, the hope that caused her to hold on to flagging relationships . . . and the thing that made her—again, her own words—”a crazy person.”
Here Liz, single and nearly 40, opens up about why motherhood was and is so important to her and how she did “the work” to loosen her grip on that hope. And while she acknowledges that the circumstances of life may not always align just right for every woman who wants to be a mom to be one, she also knows that there are ways to create and grow and build life even without giving birth.
