Life Without Baby Workbook 3: Dealing With the Day-to-Day Challenges
What do you say when someone asks, “Do you have kids?” How do you respond to an invitation for a baby shower? How do you navigate Mother’s Day?
None of these questions have simple answers when you’re childless-not-by-choice, and author and blogger Lisa Manterfield tackles them, along with other common social challenges, in this third book of the Life Without Baby series.
From handling surprise pregnancy announcements and difficult family gatherings to answering invasive questions and well-intentioned advice, Manterfield shares her own stories and passes along wisdom gained from the worldwide Life Without Baby community. As within the two previous books in the series, she offers humor and gentle support to help women heal from the pain of their losses and come to terms with their new life paths.
Manterfield is the author of the memoir I’m Taking My Eggs and Going Home: How One Woman Dared to Say No to Motherhood and a recipient of the Independent Publisher Book Awards Silver Medal. As the founder of LifeWithoutBaby.com, the international online community for women coming to terms with childlessness, she has written and spoken extensively on the topics of loss, grief, and letting go of dreams.
