    Socially infertile? The language we use to describe living without chiildren

    Hi - I'm new to this forum and my story is that I had two rounds of IVF with my ex-husband, one of which was egg donation. I have learnt to live without my own children and I am very happy with my life. I am an editor for a site for childfree women, celebrating who we are rather than dwelling on negatives. I recently published an opinion piece about the language used to describe childfree women and I would be really interested in the opinions of forum members here - still trying to work out a lot of this rather than having ready packaged answers. Your thoughts are very welcome - the article is at this lnk Socially infertile? What?s in a name?? - tlfw
