S4, E34: Your Womb Is Not Your Worth: Why Motherhood Isn’t Every Woman’s Goal

Ryan was fairly certain she didn’t want kids but assumed the urge might come someday. Although she never changed her mind, she met the love of her life and got married. Tennesha and Ryan discuss the stigmas associated with women that are childfree by choice. Tennesha also shares how a medical condition has not only made the topic of children a more imminent one but has also put her on the fence about having children of her own.
