Childfree Reflections

With Marcia Drut-Davis

Infertility is an agonizing physical, financial and emotional challenge. I’ve known many women and men who will go to extremes to become pregnant. Sometimes, the woman’s health is even placed in jeopardy to risk a successful pregnancy. The cost can be staggering. The emotional toll can be devastating every time failure is experienced.

Do you think infertile people are affected by society’s expectations for normal people to want to raise children of their own? Do you think people are branded as “barren”? Do you think people are aware of the childfree lifestyle as being a viable choice?
