Perspective from a Muslim Woman

I found this interesting blog post today from a Muslim Woman who is leaning towards the decision not to have children.

I found this article on line about the reasons why the decision to have children or not can be difficult. The author has done a survey about why people decide not to have children

The author choose to be kid-free in the end. Even though the focus on her research was on people who have decided not to have children, she highlighted many of the reasons that my clients (who haven't yet made the decision) give for their dilemma.

What is your sabeteur saying?

In the coaching I do with clients (from all over the world as I do telephone coaching as well as face-to-face coaching), I introduce the concept of 'the sabeteur'. The sabeteur is the part of us that wants to keep us fearful and stuck - it is the bit of us that sabatoges our happiness and well-being. I've found that, when people are struggling with the baby decision, the sabeteur comes out very strongly. Maybe it says 'You would be a terrible mother anyway - if you had kids' or perhaps it says 'If you don't have kids, you'll grow old and lonely.'

I get clients to give their sabeteur a personna - identify it, find out what it says and what triggers it. And then, we work to weaken it's grip - so that you can make the decision from a place of power and confidence - instead of a fearful place.
