Abstract:

"What if I never get to be a mother? When this doubt first takes hold, it can knock you completely off your feet. You feel cheated, frustrated, and no longer sure of your place in society, your family, or your circle of friends. Now ... imagine you could spend time with someone who really understands how you feel, who lets you express all the things that once seemed whiny, self-indulgent, or just plain crazy, and who confides that she once felt that way too. Life Without Baby founder, Lisa Manterfield, once stood where you are and not only survived, but thrived. Now she shares what she learned from her own experiences and from the women of the community she created. She'll help you know when it's time to cut your losses and let go of your dream, give yourself permission to grieve the loss that few others can truly understand, learn some emotional aikido moves to handle social challenges, such as baby showers, Mother's Day, and the dreaded Do you have kids? question, rediscover your passion and find joy again, all without enduring a complete life makeover. Also how to get pragmatic about aging without children and building a new kind of family. Based on her small-group workshops and popular ebook series, this book offers a combination of hard-won lessons, gentle queries, and real-world suggestions. Manterfield is a comforting and supportive companion who will guide you gently down your own path to making peace with being childfree-not-by-choice and thriving in a new happily ever after"--Publisher
