Welcome to the fourth and final instalment of Womanly Wednesday! I hope you’ve enjoyed this mini-series!
Let’s check out the stats and meet at the bottom.
I think it’s no surprise that the most common number of children women have is two. That’s the dream, right? One boy, one girl?
It’s surprising to me the number of women that have gone through an abortion, and also the number of women that didn’t want to answer. It goes to show that people still feel a lot of shame, and probably pain over it. I’ve never been pregnant, or had an abortion so it’s hard to visualise how that must feel. I can only imagine it to be a battle between thoughts of guilt, and thoughts of ‘you’ve done the right thing’.
I never wanted children until recently, I always thought they were gross. I’m getting older now and starting to realise that it must be quite nice to raise something that loves you so much, that you love so much – to get to know this tiny person that is part of you, watch them grow and help them get the best out of life. It must be one of the meanings of life – to live for your children, to love something more than yourself.
I hope my ovaries aren’t dried up, yet, because I’m almost 30 and I don’t see myself with children until my mid 30’s! Doom.
What are your thoughts?
