From thirteen years ago:

Maurer offered a seminar to open communications about the issue. “I think there is just an innate drive to procreate. It’s the life force. I didn’t need to have a child. I wanted one and expected to have one. Many women are this way. Coming to terms with childlessness and having support is also learning to redirect your birth-giving energy into some other kind of creativity, because that’s what it is: Birthing equals creating.”
