If you are childless and live in the Lower Mainland/Vancouver area of British Columbia, Emily Koert would like to talk to you. She is working on her doctorate in counselling psychology at the University of British Columbia and is researching childlessness after postponement or delay of motherhood. She is most interested in women who expected to become mothers but have run out of fertile years for various reasons, including reluctant partners.
Emily writes, “I am exploring the lived experience of chldlessness for these women, including examining how they construct their lives and identities as childless women.” She wants to do interviews in person.
If you are interested, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me (here in comments or email@example.com) and I’ll relay the message. Thanks.
I’ve been blog-hopping lately and have some sites to recommend.
TheNotMom, published by Karen Malone Wright, is a colorful collection of information and wisdom about childlessness. She was kind enough to reprint one of my postings on June 27. I’m enjoying this site and think you might, too. Find it at http://TheNotMom.tumblr.com.
