About this work


"Pronatalism. At its core, it's the belief that having children should be the central focus of every adult's life. In this book, Laura Carroll shows us how pronatalist beliefs have become so embedded that they have come to be seen as 'true'. She examines how they negatively affect us individually and collectively, and why all of us can no longer afford to leave pronatalist assumptions unquestioned. She scrutinizes seven major pronatalist assumptions and offers alternative mindsets that reflect today's society. Whether you are already a parent, want to be a parent, or don't want children, you will never think about parenthood in the same way."--From cover.
