Episode Info:

Rima’s life as a childless 30-something woman is a provocation for many people & a normal topic of conversation. Convinced that other childless women experience the same, this episode looks at why we should stop shaming women for not wanting children, the true confessions of many clients who admit to wishing they never had kids & why this shame can be very triggering for some women. She examines the roles of tradition, culture, religion, patriarchy & the idea of “nature” in why women are coaxed to have children & become wives from a young age. Rima hopes we can have honest conversations on what it means to raise children & why it might not be for everyone - and why that’s totally okay. There is no parent shaming in this episode, just a plea for women to be treated equally, regardless of their desires to reproduce. From the state of the world today to simply already being happy & content, there are many reasons why women choose not to have children.
