My Childfree History

Since the year 2000, I have been a leading voice on the childfree choice. My book,  Families of Two received international recognition, and paved the way for me to become an expert on the childfree. Since its publication, I have continued to conduct qualitative research on this choice, which led to my book, The Baby Matrix.

I am currently conducting a longitudinal study on childfree women, and working on the second edition of Families of Two. For this edition I am looking for people in childfree romantic partnerships from around the world. If this describes you, please contact me!
