Thank you. Yes. I wrote about choosing not to have children as well a little while ago (https://medium.com/@rachaelrenk1/the-weight-or-the-child-free-choice-339e17319fb6) and while I have a list that feels a mile long, all other reasons pale in comparison to this: I just don’t want to. I passionately believe that this is the only reason that matters. In general, I think your experience is great — you mention not a lot of pressure or judgement regarding your choice — but unfortunately my experience has been different. To all those that have pressured and judged me in the past, do you really think it’s a good idea for someone who just does. not. want. to be a mother to procreate?

Your article really resonates with me. Thank you for sharing. This kind of solidarity means a lot to me.
