Concerning the Bearing of Half-Elven Children by Human Females

Multiple examples exist in Tolkien’s writings of children being born to a human father and an elven (or at least mostly elven) mother. However, we see no cases of children being born to parents where the mother is human and the father is an elf. It may be that the scenario of such a pair attempting to beget a child simply did not occur. Regardless, I still find myself wanting to investigate whether such a union could produce healthy offspring, as I suspect the answer may be no.
