For centuries, women have felt pressure to have a baby. Most adult women who don’t have children by their mid-late twenties have found themselves at parties, holidays, or family dinners where someone comments on their “biological clock” or asks that inevitable question–”When are you going to have a baby?”
In this episode, we dive deep into our own stories, those of the Undefining Motherhood community at large, and pop in some fascinating tidbits of history as we try to answer this question–Why does our society feel so comfortable asking personal questions about women’s bodies?
This conversation is riveting, so settle in, listen up, and let us know your thoughts on Instagram so we can continue to further this important conversation.
