Why Have Children

Many of the questions that clients have upon coming to see me is a variation on this one - why have children?

Zoe Williams has written a lovely piece in the Guardian's Comment is Free Section Why Have Children- it is a personal explanation of her decision and it cannot be universalized but I feel it gives an insight into why women who decide to have children have done it.

'People love having children. So the question is, why? Is it a grand delusion, a memory wipe about what life was like before? Is it, as the fiction writer Lorrie Moore once said, that children destroy everything else in your life and then become the best thing in it? Or are they a furnace of purpose and fulfilment, where previously there were only spot fires of miscellaneous interest?'
