    204. Should we be thinking about kids in our 20s?

    204. Should we be thinking about kids in our 20s?

    The thought of having children in our 20s feels like an incredibly adult decision, and is one a lot of us probably don't consider. We want to protect our youth and our freedom a little bit longer, or perhaps have decided we probably will never want children.

    But whether you want to have children or not, having a clear understanding of your future intentions or choices, your reproductive health, the kind of person who might make a good partner, and therefore parent, is important. More information, more foresight actually equals greater freedom and sometimes time to decide. 

    We break down: 


    Why you should be thinking in your 20s
    The pros and cons of having children in your 20s 
    The argument for NOT having children 
    Fertility
    Milestone anxiety and the pressure to find someone 
    Your stories of pregnancy, parenthood and fertility in your 20s

    The origins of why we feel unworthy of love
    Childhood wounds 
    Early romantic scripts and teen romance 
    Repeated rejection and shame

    And so much more. Listen now!
