1: The birth of the (un)Ripe Community. Why do we need to talk about childlessness anyway?

This week's episode is all about the birth of UnRipe. Who is Unripe, who is Jo? What is the (un)Ripe mission and our focus on Women in Australia and New Zealand who do not have children?

Statistics: An intro to childless and childfree stats for women n Australia and New Zealand. 

Shit that comes up on my feed: A weekly round-up of stories that we've encountered. This week is all about an article published on Mamamia, "Parents in Lockdown", once again pitting parents against the childfree.

Question of the Week: Have you spoken to a counsellor or psychologist (or even your GP) about the grief you've experienced from childlessness?
