Childless not by Choice

Hello there, my name is Civilla Morgan. Are you childless not by choice? Do you know someone who is?

After years of hoping, and waiting, even attempting on two occasions to adopt; I realized I would never have children. It was a difficult time for me, but I decided that I could not be the only woman on this planet trying to figure out how to deal with my situation.

You see, I was not willing to pretend I was OK when I really was not. I wanted children and I was not going to be having any.  I heard all types of comments down through the years from acquaintances and strangers alike. Some meant well, some wanted me to be sure I recognized they had something I would never have.

But through it all, as much as my heart hurt, I also knew there were women worldwide who were going through the same or similar circumstances and feelings. And on top of that, some women are being physically and mentally mistreated.

So I created Childless not by Choice aka 21st Century Hannah. A platform where I speak to and encourage women who are childless not by choice. Check out my episodes, and please tell your friends and family; especially those who are childless not by choice. For details on all things childless not by choice, visit me at 

Thank you!

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by once again. It is truly appreciated. In this episode, I had the great opportunity to interview United Kingdom based childless not by choice advocate Lesley Pyne.  

We discussed her 10-year struggle with childlessness before coming to terms with the fact that she would not have children.

We talked about the fact that as women around the world who advocate for the childless not by choice community, this is not a competition.  We need to help where we are.

In this interview, Lesley and I discuss her becoming a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner, as she traveled her road of childlessness. We talked about how NLP helped her, and how she in turn uses it to help others.

As our interview continued, we talked about whether or not NLP completely heals, and the fact that it is a great deal of help, though not necessarily something that completely helps.  

We talked about how time heals to some extent, the journey through childlessness. In fact, Lesley, mentioned that she is now happy with her childlessness, which of course solicited more questions!  It was an interesting conversation. And I hope this interview is as helpful to you, as it was to me.

Thank you so much Lesley Pyne for doing what you do, where you are.
