From the Back Cover
Women who have been there share their stories to help you decide: Do I Want to Be a Mom?
Today, the question of motherhood is no longer just a matter of when but also if. And with the question of if comes a barrage of even more daunting questions: How will having a baby affect my career? My body? My health? My marriage? Do I Want to Be a Mom? shares the illuminating, candid voices of women from all walks of life who have grappled with these same difficult questions to help you come to a decision about motherhood that's right for you.
Do I Want to Be a Mom? is for any woman who has ever wondered:
- Am I selfish if I don't want to have children?
- Can I afford children?
- What if my marriage breaks up?
- Can I take time off from work to have children?
- Can I have kids after forty if I change my mind?
- Will I be sorry when I'm older if I don't have kids?
From new moms to those who have never heard even the slightest chime from their biological clock, the reflective stories found in this book provide a framework to help you examine your motivations and make your own guilt-free decision. These stories convey the same concerns and fears you may have raised with yourself or your closest friends, as well as the uplifting reasons you may consider motherhood--the love, fun, and fulfillment that many women gain as mothers.

Hearing other women's stories gave me the tools I needed to further think about my own decision. Sometimes we expect all books to be "self-help" problem solvers. This one makes you think, but it doesn't make your decision for you.
