In this co-interview with my good friend, Caitlin Nisos, Caitlin talks about her big aspirations, how social change and impacting the world has been at the top of her to-do list, how she sees herself as a spiritual mom or community mom. But now, at almost 40, she’s looking at whether she wants to experience the incredible life experience that people with uteruses can have - carry and birth a child.
We talk about her ambivalence around motherhood, the voices that made her question her mothering, and how having someone around when we’re older could be really nice.
We also talk about how I’ve been courting this idea of motherhood, building trust with it and my body (and listening to my body!), and mothering myself along the way.
We dive into the ways we can really live the lives we want regardless of whether we have children or not, how it’s up to us to meet our greatest yearnings, and to create a satisfying as hell life.
