How can I bring a child into this world?

How can I bring a child into this world? That is a question that sometimes people wondering whether they should have kids or not ask themselves.

This columnist in a Canadian newspaper also asked himself this question in this recent article for his paper.

A difficult question and one that there is no easy answer for.

Have I waited too long? Am I too old to become a mom?

Although the majority of my clients who come to me are between the ages of 29 - 40, I do have a significant minority of women who are coming to me in their mid to late 40's. This article written on the Forbes blog is not the most positive nor the most well written that I have read on the subject. But it raises issues of the problems that can happen if we leave it too long to become a mother.

I have worked with women in their late 40's who have decided to go ahead and have accessed egg donor technology. I have also worked with women who have also decided to work on letting go and accepting that they will not have children. It's a very difficult and personal decision.

Married Couples who are choosing not to have kids


I sometimes have clients coming to me when they have recently gotton married. (or who opt to work as a couple together with my associate relationship coach)

'But everyone says that having children is the next step - but we don't think we want children! Are we werid?'

As this article points out, more and more people are choosing marriage without children. And while there is less pressure to have children than there was 20 or 30 years ago, pressure by friends and family can lead people to doubt and worry about their choices.
