I am SO excited to share today’s episode, which is our second episode all the pros and cons of having kids. It came out of an Instagram Q&A where someone asked what Zack and I were doing, and I said we were undecided and then asked people how they decided—and the responses were so fascinating, I knew I had to make it into a podcast. This episode features:
- TikTok stars Leanne and Allison from Thirsty On Main on what no one tells you about sperm donation, infertility struggles, deciding what religion to raise kids, and body image & sex after birth
- Dr. Kiarra King, OB-GYN on the one thing women can do that grosses her out, raising an only child, Black maternal mortality, and pooping during labor
- Plus, dozens of anonymous comments from listeners about the true realities of parenting AND being childfree
Obviously, this is a huge and complex topic, and we’re just scratching the surface here. I can’t wait to continue to have this incredibly important discussion with you!
I can’t wait to hear your feedback on this episode! Screenshot and tag me—i’m @lizmoody— and my guests—@thirstyonmaintiktok and @drkiarraking and share your thoughts, feelings, and reactions.
