Do You Have Kids? Life When the Answer is No
Spend Mother’s Day weekend with women who, for myriad reasons, don't and won't have children of our own. In community and with mutual respect, we'll explore the ways we create lives of meaning, connection, and purpose outside the mainstream of motherhood.
Time & Location
May 12, 2:00 PM EDT – May 15, 1:00 PM EDT
Hope Springs Institute, 4988 Mineral Springs Rd, Peebles, OH 45660, USA
About The Event
Come to Hope Springs this Mother's Day weekend, where we’ll build mutual respect and understanding as we explore how our lives unfold differently than those of mothers—in our relationships with friends and family members, while at work and at play, and as we age. Most of all, we’ll embrace this unique and perfectly normal way of living and celebrate the many gifts we offer ourselves, each other, and the communities in which we live.
We seek a multigenerational, diverse group of women who identify as childless and childfree, as well as those who were ambivalent about motherhood. [Not well suited for women actively trying to conceive or those who are experiencing deep grief. Reach out if you’d like recommendations for support and healing.]
