I have spent over three years working on a book and documentary project on childless by choice couples. Do I call myself an advocate? No. I don’t advocate a childfree life. For many of the childfree, it’s not an easy decision. It’s a process. It requires that you be self-aware and impervious to external pressure. It can be isolating. Your motives will be questioned.
Most people can’t imagine a life without kids. But it was the right choice for me.
All I advocate is that people listen to their heart and make the best decision for themselves. Or not.
