Martie Maguire: "That song touches on the issue of infertility, which Emily and I both had to deal with. I think we feel a responsibility to break down some of these barriers - it's much more of a common problem than people realize. Someone the other day asked me if twins ran in my family. When I told them I did in vitro they said, 'Oh, so you took the easy way.' I couldn't believe they said that."
Emily Robison: "We both got pregnant through in vitro fertilization, and people usually get all freaked out when we tell them that. I don't find it a stigma at all - people need to start talking about it, because it feels almost epidemic. And it's so wonderful that we have this technology." (quotes thanks to the band's publicist)
Dan Wilson of Semisonic, who wrote five other tracks on the album, co-wrote this with the Dixie Chicks. His own experience as a parent came into play: his daughter was born premature.
