117 Reasons Not To Have Kids

  • Summary

  • Subscribe to Mamamia

    One woman has gone viral for listing all the reasons why she doesn’t want to have kids (including vaginal changes, swelling and general noise), but looking at the list do we blame her?

    Plus, one brand is allegedly air-brushing stretchmarks ON to their models now. Is this progress or just cynical marketing?

    And, consent at hens and bucks parties… we unpack one very tricky dilemma.

    The End Bits:

    • Listen to our latest episode: A Candid Debrief About The Crown
