Do I want a baby? The biggest life decision we face. Deciding whether or not to have children is no easy decision. And for today’s savvy tech-smart generation, it is no longer a question of when, but, if. Making that choice to forever change your life is daunting, and when considering the unknowns, most of us are left with more questions than answers. Should I have a baby even if I don’t feel clucky? Am I selfish if I don’t want children? But what if I wait? Most people realize that just wanting a baby doesn't necessarily mean they are physically, mentally, or emotionally prepared to have one. Many women think it might be nice to have a child but are not sure how having a baby will impact their lives. As much as they may desire a family, they question their readiness and wonder if they are prepared to accept the changes that having a baby would inevitably bring. Others believe being child-free is the right choice for them, but worry they may regret their decision later on when it is too late. In this book, Imogen Barnacle, a Human and Social services expert, and founder of the popular Parenting site Baby Boat, draws on her expertise and personal experience to help readers decide whether now is the right time to become a mother. Along with exploring the common fears and concerns surrounding motherhood, Imogen provides honest and real-life insight into her journey from being 99.9% sure she didn’t want children, to happy, proud mother, and baby advocate. By presenting important information, posing thought-provoking questions and speaking openly about the fears, doubts, and joys motherhood brings she provides a real look at this modern day dilemma. Whether you have reached the magic thirty-five, struggling to decide if you want children, or just looking for insight into the ups and downs of motherhood, then this book will help guide you towards a confident and guilt-free decision. Armed with the facts, that Boarding the Baby Boat provides, you can make your own decision on whether motherhood is the best choice for you.
