“I read ‘So… kids?’ (March 2017) again and again. Then my hus­band was in­trigued, so I read it again! As a mar­ried woman in my late 30s, I’m reg­u­larly in­un­dated with ques­tions about when I’m go­ing to have kids – which of­ten trig­gers ‘None of your busi­ness’ in re­ply.

We live in an age when it’s pos­si­ble to choose when to have chil­dren, and whether to have them at all. But we’re cul­tur­ally and so­cially brain­washed into ide­olo­gies about when cer­tain things should hap­pen. Only by over­com­ing this mind­set can we be truly in­di­vid­u­al­is­tic about our de­ci­sions and our wombs.

At the end of the day, what works for one per­son may not work for an­other, and not ev­ery­one is ma­ter­nal. It’s all about mak­ing choices.” – Magda Liede­man-vaas, via email
