For this generation, it’s not uncommon to hear of a woman who has decided to delay starting a family.
With the amount of opportunities we now have, and the fact that birth control exists, we can decide when and at what stage of life we want children.
Zoe Marshall, blogger, radio personality and wife of three years to rugby league star Benji Marshall, has admitted she is not yet ready to have kids.
“My husband’s ready, my body’s ready, I just need to kind of get ready,” the 31-year-old told Daily Mail Australia.
“But I don’t know if I’m ever going to be that woman that goes ‘Oh my God, I want a baby now!”’
Marshall has been open about her struggle with reproductive condition Endometriosis in the past. She says her doctor has urged her to consider starting a family sooner rather than later after undergoing multiple surgical operations to help ease the discomfort and pain Endometriosis causes.
Such a pleasure to host the @endometriosisaustralia #endomarchaust high tea yesterday. Incredible speakers, wonderful women and I learnt so much about a disease I’ve been ashamed of for many years. 1 in 10 women suffer and no one knows or talks about it… #timeforachange A photo posted by Zoe Marshall (@zoebmarshall) on Mar 19, 2016 at 1:22pm PDT
