Afternoon Live - Choosing Child Free

March 21, 2018



The path to being a Childfree Woman is not always direct.  If you're in the process of deciding to have children or not, you can experience a sense of "outsiderness" from your friends and family.  It can be difficult to find a safe place to explore your personal journey toward or away from motherhood.  In the above segment from KATU's Afternoon Live, I talk about some of the possible experiences women encounter as they make this choice.  Below, you'll find some possible ways to support you on your journey.  

  • Connect with at least one person who is genuinely neutral about your choice – be it a dear friend, family member or a trusted therapist.

  • Journal about feelings you experience when you imagine yourself on both paths.

  • Consider what you want your life to look like in 5, 10, 15 years.

  • Talk to a woman who has chosen not to have children.

  • Most importantly, trust yourself!!!
