Never to be a Mother: A Guide for All Women who Didn't--or Couldn't--have Children

Front Cover
HarperSanFrancisco, 1992 - Social Science - 197 pages
Most people think of childless women as infertile married women. But women whose husbands do not want children, single women, lesbians, infertile women, and disabled women may also never be biological mothers. Here is a pioneering step-by-step program for healing and wholeness. Anton offers women without children an uplifting and practical plan for confronting grief, anger, and guilt; discovering alternative ways to "mother"; and enjoying rich, fulfilling lives. Inspiring real-life stories explore grandmothering or "aunting" the children of others and describe the benefits of a self-help support group and how to form one.
