Choosing to be Childfree
The programme is devoted to women who are childfree by choice.
To discuss the growing numbers choosing to do so, Jenni is joined by Dr Catherine Hakim, Senior Fellow at the London School of Economics.
A number of women share their stories about being childfree in a child-centred society.
Baby Coach Beth Follini and writer and commentator Cristina Odone discuss why so many women are so conflicted about motherhood nowadays and, what, if any, is the potential cost to society.
