    Living a Childless Life

    Living a Childless Life

    Mother’s Day is a holiday impossible to escape or ignore. But not every woman is buying what Hallmark is selling. Many women have complicated relationships with their mothers. Others mourn lost or absent moms, and many women are not mothers at all, either by choice or by chance. 
    This week’s show explores being a childless woman in a culture that fetishizes motherhood. Meet Jody Day, a global thought leader and advocate for childless women. Jody is an author, a TEDx speaker, an integrative psychotherapist, and the founder of a global friendship and support network for childless women. She joins me to share her take on how involuntarily childlessness impacts life, happiness, intimacy, and more.

So Helpful!!

What an amazing podcast. I did some research and recommended this to an aunt of mine a few months back and she has thanked me on multiple occasions for sending it to her. Just sent it over to my mom who is nearing the age of 50 as well and am hoping for her to receive the goodness and love that Katie is providing for her audience!

Fun & upbeat!

I love how Katie brings this fun and upbeat energy to some of the challenging issues that face us as we age. I’ve learned some great strategies but equally importantly, I feel less alone. Katie is like a good friend who “gets it” and also brings some humor to everything. Thanks Katie for an awesome podcast!

Simply Divine!

Thank you, Katie for your inspirational interviews. I work with real women over 50 in front of the camera who are unsung heroes. We all have stories to tell.
