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. It examines why society finds the childfree choice hard to accept and what’s necessary to reach social and cultural acceptance. Check out my ever-growing library of childfree writings Here.
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!
