“Should I have kids?”
“Do I want kids?”
“Will I regret becoming a parent?”
“Will I regret not becoming a parent?”

Indecision around parenthood is way more common than you think and it’s time to remove the shame and judgment from the topic by having open conversations like this week’s Beyond Influential episode. 

Ann Davidman is a licensed marriage and family therapist, a motherhood and fatherhood clarity mentor,  and the co-creator of the program and book, Motherhood – Is it for me?, which has been a trusted resource for women experiencing ambivalence about motherhood. 

For the past 30 years, Ann has been coaching potential parents in a supportive and non-judgmental way to help them discover their true desire about whether they want to have children or live a childfree life.

On Ep. 175, we cover:

  • How Ann started a business around parenthood indecision
  • Motherhood & Fatherhood Clarity Framework: What it is & How it was developed 
  • The shifts and similarities over the decades on concerns and attitudes on parenthood 
  • How the decision is different for men vs. women
  • Regrets & the myth of changing your mind  
  • “Do I want kids?” What factors you need to evaluate
  • Destigmatizing a child-free life, what she would add to her book today, & more!
