Episode #20 – Menopause without Children
In this week’s Wise Women Conversations I speak with Chantal Vanderhaeghen about a very important topic – women who reach menopause without having children. For some women the choice not to have children is a conscious one but for Chantal it wasn’t. She had always wanted to have children but going into an early menopause meant that she ran out of time and this impacted her feelings about herself as a woman. Chantal shares her journey and is very open about how she felt at the time and the impact that not having children had on her. This is a very vulnerable and open conversation and I am truly grateful to Chantal for her openness and honesty.
