Last week Mairead had a text from a listener who has struggled in relationships when girlfriends have decided they can change his mind over him not wanting children. Children are not for everyone and many couples who are child-free by choice feel quite isolated in their decision.

Margaret O'Connor is a psychotherapist in Limerick who works with couples who are unsure if parenthood is for them, and helps them decide what they want for their lives. Many couples can feel pressure from a very family-oriented society or from their own parents to give them grandchildren.

Margaret also helps couples see a positive child-free life, which is something we only see portrayed as a sad thing in TV and films.
