Early Mama On the Air

So we're back from our Rhode Island getaway (more on that later), but I wanted to share something exciting!

Last week I was interviewed on the radio for the CBC in Canada — which also plays on NPR here in the States.

It was about the current fertility issues being brought up lately with the Get Britain Fertile campaign, from the perspective of a younger woman who chose motherhood in her 20s. (And as the fertility expert points out, that's so not the norm. Did you know most first-time moms are in their 30s in Canada and Great Britain? Their national averages are even older than here in the U.S.)

I was really nervous (which is obvious), but I think we had an interesting, timely discussion.

Take a listen.

What did you think?
