Others Like Me: The Lives of Women Without Children


Add your own review!

Overview

A deeply personal exploration of childless and childfree women in their own words. 'Beautifully crafted, this book shows us how inner work and learning from others leads to living assuredly in our truths.' Laura Carroll, author of THE BABY MATRIX 'Louie's tone is vulnerable and empathetic, making this a must-read for everyone.' Stylist Others Like Me is the story of fourteen women around the world, from different walks of life, who don't have children. It's also the story of why Nicole Louie had to find them and what they taught her. Part memoir, part exploration of childlessness through candid conversations, this book showcases the many ways in which people find fulfilment outside of parenthood. And because the social expectation to procreate weighs the most on women, Louie focuses solely on them, their experiences and how they flourish outside of motherhood. In doing so, she upends the stereotypes that diminish women who are not mothers and offers reassurance and companionship on a path less known.

With candour and self-reflection, Louie takes us on her journey to a deeper understanding of wanting a life that does not include motherhood.

An empowering and comforting read for all women, regardless of their reproductive status. -- Ali Hall, founder of the Childfree by Choice community
