Childless not by Choice
While this is a podcast for pregnant women there are just as many women who want to be pregnant and cannot, or who are with a partner who does not want (more) children, or who have a chronic illness, or who are not able to find a suitable partner. The list of reasons is endless and as a women without children myself, and in a position where I work with women having babies daily - this is of particular interest to me.
