In episode 167 of The Just Checking In Podcast we checked back in with Patricia Faulks.
Patricia is the Founder of blog ‘Just Me & Lilley’ where she writes about being involuntarily childlessness, her life, her wonderful dog Lilley and issues affecting other involuntarily childless people.
In Part 2 we reflect on her first episode, how it was received online and how she has grown the platform and done more advocacy work in the last year!
We also discuss Patricia’s own self-awareness of her mental health and how the mantra of ‘just reach out’ can be problematic when the reality of that in someone’s life hits.
We finish by going in-depth about the current statistics around involuntarily childless people and exploring what societal factors outside of simply infertility are affecting this phenomenon.
As always, #itsokaytovent
