Deciding to Have Kids or Not When Living Abroad

March 24, 2022

Season 6, Episode 25. Do you want to have kids or not? How has your geography impacted this?

We asked these questions to the listener community, and fellow expats, immigrants, people living abroad shared their pros and cons, their talking points, their feelings, their beliefs, their dreams. Their answers range from YES to NO to MAYBE, and they're gathered here for you.

This marks the end of season six! What a gift it's been - 150 episodes and nearly 4 years of podcasting. Thank you to everyone who has formed the community of listeners, which creates a safe space for us to take on these difficult topics.
