Steph decided that we should reclaim the 16th September for the childless not by choice community. Read her full explanation here
Our community wrote a lot on this theme. Ivy Blonwyn writes about baby jealously here. Not So Mummy writes about the challenges of baby showers here. Walk In Our Shoes encourages you to say no to invites. Married and Childless writes about breaking down social barriers here and The Imagined Mother talks about disenfranchised grief.
Why the 16th September is significant
Why a forget-me-not
To My Yummy Mummy Friends
I love to be included in all your happy days. I will cheer when you graduate, throw confetti at your wedding. I will celebrate your birthdays with a smile on my face. I will be at your house warming, toast every promotion you have. I shall applaud your every success and cheerlead when you impress. When times are hard I will offer you my shoulder, wipe your tears, listen without judgement, try to dissolve your fears. When you need me dear friend, I am there to provide comfort and support. All I ask is that you understand one thing of me…
