RAR Ep. 19 - Real Women Are Mothers, Featuring Chaele Davis

RAR Ep. 19 - Real Women Are Mothers, Featuring Chaele Davis

We live in a crazy world, and it's getting crazier. For many women, it's not a world they want to bring a child into - and that's just ONE reason why women are having fewer and fewer children. In the 1970s, one in ten women reached menopause without giving birth to a child. But by 2010, it was one in five, according to data gathered by the Pew Research Center, and one in four for women with a bachelor’s degree. In Episode 19, we interview Chaele Davis, who has known she didn't want children since she found out that was an option. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Chaele is a Sarah Lawrence graduate and Institute of Culinary Education trained pastry chef and baker. She chats with us about the stigmas she has faced, how she handled those encounters, and why not having children is right for her. Please have a listen, and let us know what resonates with you!

Welcome to Episode 18, where we'll be debunking the rule, "Being a mother means losing yourself." Lydia and I are SO EXCITED to welcome our special guest, the inimitable Cody McBurnett, owner and creative director of Loki Loki, a boutique brand identity and web design firm out of Brooklyn, NY. Cody is such a rad person, and she's not only sticking to her uniquely badass personality, she's passing on the principles of identity freedom and discovery to her son Waylan.
