Initiation and making the decision to have children or not

It's often downplayed but intuition plays a strong role in most major decisions.  I recently went to a coaching conference where the hey speaker was a neuroscientist spoke about the role that intuition plays in executive decision making and how top leaders report using gut instinct to make many decisions. 

When I work with clients who are trying to make the baby decision to use a number of exercises to help clients connect to their intuition or gut instinct which many of us have become disconnected from.

A reluctant dad speaks

In my experience, many partners who are initially reluctant to have children but agree to will eventually come round to the idea of being a parent.  However, this is not always the case as this short case study from a father who entered into parenthood reluctant.

Don't rush to make a decision on being a parent

Lovely little piece of advice to a reader to this advice column with a question on the baby decision. I would have liked to see  the advice columnist focus more on  helping the writer explore the potential and possibilities of a fullfilling childfree life.

Carmeron Diaz talks about her decision

Carmeron Diaz talks openly about her decision not to have children.

Sigh. If only it was that easy!

If only making the decision to have children or not was a simple as taking this quiz.....

And if it really was that simple, there would be no need for my services, helping people make what is usually the biggest decision of their lives!

It's funny - sometimes clients say that they feel embarrassed that they need to enlist the help of a coach to help them make this decision.  Yet in most other areas of our lives, we are more than happy to call upon the support of a professional.  Who would buy a house without speaking to a mortgage broker or estate agent?  Would you sign up for a college course without speaking to an advisor at the university or college first?  And yet, for this major big life changing decision, we somehow think we should do it on our own - that we should be embarrassed to ask for help!
