How To Offer Unconditional Support for Childfree Women

At Unfertilized Eggs, we understand the stigma, misunderstandings, and sometimes irritation that comes with a woman's decision to not have children. We offer support in many ways, and if you are a person WITH children, here's how you can support the childfree community too:
There is a common societal expectation that women must become mothers to achieve a fulfilling life. However, this is not the case for every woman. Some women may choose to remain childfree, whether it be for personal, financial, or health reasons, and their decision should be respected.
Unfortunately, childfree women often face societal pressure and discrimination for their decision. They are often told that they will regret their decision, that they are selfish for not having children, or that they are not fulfilling their duty as a woman. This stigma can be harmful and hurtful, leading to feelings of isolation and inadequacy.
It is important to acknowledge that being childfree does not make a woman any less of a woman or any less fulfilled. Women can find fulfillment in various aspects of their lives, including careers, hobbies, relationships, and personal growth. In fact, being childfree can provide women with the freedom and flexibility to pursue their passions and goals without the constraints of motherhood.
It is crucial to support childfree women and to respect their decision. Rather than stigmatizing and ostracizing them, we should celebrate their choices and recognize the value they bring to society. We should also work towards creating a more inclusive and accepting society, where women are not defined solely by their reproductive choices.
In conclusion, being childfree is a valid and empowering choice for women. It is essential to acknowledge and respect this decision, and to support women in their pursuit of fulfillment and happiness, regardless of their reproductive choices.
Let us celebrate the diversity of women and their individual journeys, and work towards a more inclusive and accepting society for all.

How To Protect Your Peace As A Childfree Woman

Living in such a patriarchal society as a childfree woman who intends to NEVER change her mind can be so draining. Don't you agree?
Some people will flat out tell you you'll change your mind, try to convince you that you're "missing out," and will swear up & down that all children are blessings.
With all the noise surrounding your reproductive rights and the constant pressure you probably receive from family and associates, here are some surefire ways to protect your peace as a childfree person:
Find Your Tribe
I know you've probably heard the saying, "Birds of a feather flock together." By connecting with like-minded people, the likelihood of ever hearing those comments mentioned above are slim-to-none. You will feel accepted and encouraged to continue your childfree lifestyle. Childfree groups can be found on Facebook, Instagram, or MeetUp.
Being strong-willed is another great way to protect your peace as a childfree woman. When you feel no one supports your childfree decision, it's best to gather reassurance from within. Journaling helps with self-validation also, and we have the perfect product for that!
This is particularly important and necessary during the holiday seasons. Some may not agree with isolating during Thanksgiving and Christmas - BUT if you have family members who constantly pressure you about having children (when they KNOW you don't want them), it's best to stay away from them. This avoids any arguments, disagreements, and awkward moments that might take place. Create your own traditions in the comfort (and PEACE) of your own home!
As mentioned before, these three tips will help you to protect your peace as you continue to live childfree. Remember to always remain true to YOU - unapologetically!

The Benefits of Being Childfree
- 09 Jan 2023

Not trying to brag, but there are quite a few benefits of being childfree. For the sake of time and sparing those with short attention spans, we'll discuss just a few.
Before we get started, here's a short disclaimer: BY NO MEANS does this blog attempt to persuade readers into pursing a childfree lifestyle. The aim is to AFFIRM and reassure those who have already made a choice to become (and remain) childfree.
Ok, let's get started, shall we? There are many benefits to being childfree which include:
More Time and Freedom
This is pretty obvious, of course. However, with the extra time we're afforded, childfree people have the opportunity to sleep in more, devote more time to exercise, and journal - which all contribute to a healthier mindset and overall well-being. Having more time also allows us to spend it wisely, which brings us to the next point...
The Ability To Give Back More
Yes, we probably have the financial means give back and contribute to worthy causes in that aspect. However, having extra time also affords childfree people the opportunity to volunteer at local hospitals, schools, or community events. These are all very fulfilling activities, and you should find something that works for you and your schedule.
I'm sure you've taken time to come to the conclusion that you don't want children. As mentioned in a previous blog, this isn't something that we just "stumble upon." A huge benefit of being childfree - aside from the superficial things - is knowing that we confidently chose to deviate against societal "norms" and make a decision that works for us! Don't you agree?
All in all, there are SO many benefits to being childfree. If you'd like to share anything else, please do so in the comments!

Do you know what a childfree journal is? No? Ok, let's school you...
Similar to any other journal on the market that's specific for money management, collecting thoughts, getting closer to God, etc., a childfree journal is designed specifically for the childfree community.
Here's why you need one:
It Helps Validate Your Childfree Choice

You Feel Like You're Not Alone
The most important factor in this journal is knowing you're not the only one who doesn't have a desire to have children. Oftentimes, our society places so much focus on mothers and traditional families, that we (childfree people) feel left out. This journal helps you to feel seen.
It Enhances Your Self-Care Routine
Studies reveal that journaling helps to elevate moods, increase self-confidence, and encourages positive self-talk. Writing/reflecting in a childfree journal will also help to improve your mental health.

Journaling in the 90-Day Journal for Childfree Women will help combat that negativity.
