#274 OLIVE series: Emma Sexton on Being Child Free By Choice (#1)

Hello and welcome to this special OLIVE mini series — all around the topic of my debut novel OLIVE which is out TODAY! In lieu of a launch party, I’ve decided to release this 4-part series on 4 different women’s varying experiences and attitudes towards motherhood, based on the topics within the book.


The novel centres around Olive and her three best friends, Bea, Cecily and Isla. Bea is a mum of 3 who loves her busy chaotic home, Cecily is newly pregnant feeling apprehensive and excited, Isla is struggling with her fertility and undergoing IVF treatment. Olive knows that having children is not for her and recently broke up with her longterm boyfriend because he wanted to try for a baby and she didn’t — and this book explores the obstacle course of adulthood, navigating key life milestones, and how their friendships grow and change as they each figure out their own paths 


Today's guest is Emma Sexton, talking all about childfree-by-choice life. She is a design entrepreneur, creative strategist, speaker and coach - and founder of her own creative agency in 2013. We talk about her figuring out her own path, the things people still comment on, why it’s something she’s always known from a young age, and why we should talk about it more!
