To Have or Not To Have Kids

childless women

To have or not have kids? This question lives inside any woman of child-bearing years. The pressures and choices about Motherhood are more complicated today.

A childless woman will struggle over what she gives up. Mothers too will struggle with what they give up. There’s no wrong or right answer and meanwhile, the biological clock tick-tocks.

Let’s remember in wForum that we are a fortunate demographic of women able to choose our own lives. It’s a harder choice to be child-free because it’s more expected to want to have kids. This NYT essay, NO KIDS FOR ME, THANKS, articulates women’s feelings and decisions to have or not have kids.

Here is the above mentioned NYT article:  No Kids for me, Thanks
