    Career + children. Can I have both? - with Laura Henshaw

    Career + children. Can I have both? - with Laura Henshaw

    The most common fear we heard from you while planning this series, was what children would do to your career. Progression, relevancy, loss of superannuation, loss of identity, and comments like "why would you have kids if you're going to go back to work," all contribute to women making the decision to have children. And with increased rates of homelessness among women in Australia, and women retiring with 28% less superannuation than men, these fears are not baseless.

    But having children doesn’t have to end or derail your career. Children could even help your career.

    In this episode Laura speaks with two women on different sides of the career & motherhood journey.

    Founder & coach Janey Martino had three children under 3 in her early 30’s while her career was on a high. She continued working and now that her children are teenagers, she is able to role model to them what working parenthood looks like.

    Britt Austin loves her career in sports marketing so she created a plan that would help her return to work four months after giving birth to her first baby in April.

    Do I need to be 100% sure I want kids? - with Laura Henshaw

    Do I need to be 100% sure I want kids? - with Laura Henshaw

    If you're talking to people about the decision to have children it’s likely you’ve heard a version of this - “parenting is really hard so if you’re not 100% sure that you want children…don’t do it”.

    This episode is here to challenge that idea. The reasons people say not to have children are very convincing - you’ll never sleep again, your relationship will never be the same, you’ll never have sex again, you’ll lose your weekends. Basically your life as you know it will be over.

    But it's also the best decision some people ever make.

    In this episode Laura speaks with three women who didn’t feel an innate calling to be mothers, but now that they have children, they wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Rebecca was adamant she didn’t want children until she hit her 30’s and a death in the family made her reconsider. Alyssa’s pregnancy took her and her partner by surprise. And Melanie faced more hurdles than most conceiving her two children.

    We hate when people say “stay in your lane”. Get out of your lane!!

    Laura came in with a rant this week! So the next time you think about commenting “stay in your lane”...think again. 

    And one of you asked a tricky question about splitting the bill when you go out for dinner. You asked: “Is it stingy to ask to not to pay for alcohol I haven’t drunk it? So Laura & Steph take it to the Kic Court to decide!

    Can I be childfree and still feel fulfilled? - with Laura Henshaw

    Can I be childfree and still feel fulfilled? - with Laura Henshaw

    Whether it’s biological, circumstantial, financial, environmental, a result of trauma, or simply because you don’t want to, the reasons why people decide to be childfree are as diverse as the reasons why people decide to be parents. For many people, the decision to be childfree is met with comments like “you’ll change your mind,” or “you won’t know real love until you have a child,” or “what if you regret it?”. And with so few childfree role models showing us what a childfree life could look like, these responses can be hard to deny.

    In this episode, Laura speaks with three childfree women.

    Danni Duncan is a New Zealand based childfree content creator who has dedicated her life to showing people that a childfree life is not only possible, but can be totally fulfilling and empowering.

    Amelia is a member of our KICPOD community who made the decision not to have children based on her own childhood.

    And finally, Karen made the decision to be childfree despite having the desire to be a parent. Now she’s in her 50’s she is so happy with the decision she made.

    Then we hear your thoughts on the topic ❤️

    Do I want children or does society want me to have children? with Laura Henshaw

    Do I want children or does society want me to have children? with Laura Henshaw

    You meet someone, you get married, you have children. Right? That’s been the status quo for so long that it can be hard to imagine an alternative. For so many people who don’t feel called to be a parent, that path doesn’t feel right. But if you’ve grown up in a world where everyone you know, and everyone you follow, and every character in every movie and every TV show is getting married and having children, how do you distinguish what you want versus what society wants you to want? And if you do decide to have children…does your whole purpose have to switch to motherhood?

    To help answer these questions Laura speaks with parenthood clarity mentor Ann Davidman. Ann and Denise L. Carlini wrote the book ‘Motherhood - Is It For Me?’ and Ann runs an online Motherhood Clarity Course and Fatherhood Clarity Course for people struggling with indecision.

    Laura asks Ann: why do we feel shame over not knowing if we want to have children? What is the difference between our desire for children vs our decision to have children? Can we have more than one purpose in life? And most importantly…how do we start to figure all of this out?

    Do I Want Kids? a miniseries with Laura

    Do I Want Kids? a miniseries with Laura

    Having children is one of the biggest decisions we'll ever make.

    And for many people between the ages of 20 - 40, who don't feel called to be a parent, this question can be all-consuming. It was for Laura.

    Last year Laura opened up on the podcast for the first time about her anxieties about having children. Your messages of support, encouragement, and "I feel exactly the same as you," are what inspired this miniseries.

    'Do I Want Kids' is for everyone who is sitting with the decision.

    Over 7 episodes hear Laura speak with people from all walks of life; from parenthood mentors to child-free advocates, career-driven professionals, stay-at-home mums, young and older parents, relationship experts, medical specialists and finally her own husband Dalton, about this decision.

    New episodes will publish every Wednesday and Friday.
