No one should be ashamed of their choice whether to birth children or not. What I don’t understand here is the description of what happens to women’s bodies who become mothers when you don’t have the experience from which to talk. I don’t know what my 30s or 40s are like without being a mother and I can’t speak to those experiences, but you listed a myriad of things that “happen” to women who become mothers that can happen to any woman for a myriad of reasons related to age and other health issues as occurring just for pregnant women. Not only is it misinformed, but you speak on these without the benefit of experience. I would never describe what being child-free is like as that is not my experience, but why do you think it is okay ti be a hypocrite here and complain of how inconsiderate people are of your decision not to have children and then be so disrespectful to women who do?!
