    One thought on “No Children, No Guilt”

    1. I really liked this book. There's nothing new or even scientific to it, but I often get so tired of people assuming I hate children or that I don't know what I want (at pushing forty and after being married to my spouse for close to 20 years) or just asking "WHY" when I say I have no children, nor do I want children. And it was nice to read a book where the message was: that's okay.

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read. It was straight to the point, with only minor strays that did not really relate to the title. She made some key points that I can't say I've ever thought about before. You either have always known you wanted what is "natural" (to give birth) or you have always known that you don't! And why it is that strangers and loved ones ALWAYS automatically say "You'll change your mind." Excuse me, I didn't realize what happens with my uterus was any of your business? L [...]

    3. The author writes about her life, relationships and experiences of being CF. There are not enough current books about making the child free decision. No Children, No Guilt is worth a read.
