List Rules Upvote the saddest songs about not being able to get pregnant or have a baby.

If you’re looking to make a sad infertility song playlist, this list is for you. The struggle to get pregnant and have a baby can be excruciatingly painful, and so it shouldn’t be surprising that there are so many depressing songs about infertility. These are some of the saddest songs about infertility, and about wanting a baby.

Some of the most depressing songs about being infertile came about because the songwriter was having trouble conceiving. When two members of the Dixie Chicks, sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, were dealing with infertility, they put their thoughts on paper, and the song “So Hard” was the result. This sad song about infertility reflects unflinching feelings of anger, confusion, and bitter disappointment.

Other songs about not getting pregnant, or the deep desire for parenthood, include “Barren Egg” by Jill Sobule, “I Would Die for That” by Kellie Coffey, and “No Less a Woman” by Lady Saw. Other songs listed here might not be specifically about infertility, but they capture the feelings remarkably well.

While it’s never healthy to dwell on pain and loss, it is healthy to release those feelings of sadness. Music can heal. Sometimes, a good cry is necessary, so listen to these sad infertility song lyrics and know that you aren’t alone.
