IF it were real, trans women would be able to do it too, as in the book children come from the desire of wanting a child so badly that it basically manifests itself. But iirc, also in the book, it's seen as something like a gift or blessing-something bonus to being women, not integral to it in a way that's exclusive to women who physically don't have children. Not all women can have or even want children, and they're just as much women as those who do.
