A reporter for Canada's National Post called me last week to talk about the experience of being a 20-something mother when the culture — in both the U.S. and Canada — is largely changing.
What's it like to be a 20-something mother today, when most 20-somethings aren't parents yet?
We also talked about how choosing younger motherhood might possibly be better for your career (despite the National Post's headline).
It's always nerve-wracking to be interviewed because you never know how your quotes will be used/interpreted and how the general tone of the article will end up. But I think it's an accurate and insightful look into this recent cultural issue that clearly crosses boundary lines and even oceans. It includes several perspectives from "early mamas" in Canada — and hey! I'm quoted in there!
Check out the Canadian Post article and let me know your thoughts.
