The Pros & Cons of Having Kids

The Pros & Cons of Having Kids

I am SO excited to share today’s episode, which is all about 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:

  • Best-selling author Meghan Daum on the choice to remain childfree
  • Ambitious Kitchen’s Monique Volz on birth, and how being a new mom impacts marriage
  • Sophie Jaffe on an unexpected struggle of pregnancy and healing her own childhood through her parenting
  • Plus, dozens of anonymous comments from listeners about the true realities of parenting AND being childfree

I know that i can’t produce a comprehensive episode about a topic this deep and important—as Meghan Daum said in our interview, it’s perhaps the most existential decision we face—but I do think there’s a lot of food for thought here, and a lot for you to discuss with friends, family members, and partners. As I often say, I think a huge part of wellness is being as happy and healthy in all parts of your life, and having kids is a huge part of that, so I can’t wait to have this discussion with you.

I can’t wait to hear what your feedback on this episode! Screenshot and tag me—i’m @lizmoody— and my guests—@meghan_daum, @ambitiouskitchen, and @sophie.jaffe and shares your thoughts, feelings, and reactions.
