In African societies, becoming a mother is considered standard practice, as many women choose to get married and have children. But what happens when you decide not to? In this episode, Nigerian Public Health Specialist, Chizo, openly talks about her decision to be childfree. She talks about witnessing the risks of pregnancy firsthand, which contributed to her choice, as well as realizing that raising children was not aligned with her long-term aspirations. She also discusses how, despite societal expectations, she has found peace and contentment with her decision not to have children.
