It’s very inspiring article, not just for the young mothers but for all families that wish to expand their families and struggle to do it. I wish more young and middle aged women will speak up & share their stories of inspiration, kind of how to overcome nowadays challenges. Mazel

Learning Torah is the essence of the motivation spoken. I don’t believe this is a matter of “family planning” understanding, but rather healthy expression, which a mashpia’s existence motivates. (Despite that hafatzos shouldn’t get in the way of family peace, it still can be fully engaged in, speaking to a mashpia for support.)

Bh, you are able to manage it. Every Neshama is a gift, and every woman needs to so what is right for her body, so that she can be there for the kids she already has. Inspiration is good, and no one should get pressured to do something they cannot handle physically or emotionally. Parenthood is all encompassing and pushes one to grow, but know yourself, be aware if you are at a breaking point.

Agreed

Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
May Hashem give all of us strength to raise our precious children.

To the comments regarding cleaning help, do you want to pay for it? Don’t you think we all wish we could hire more cleaning help? But that comes after tuition, may Hashem bentch us to afford it.

If only it were so simple for some of us to wake up and decide that we want more kids. If only life worked that way.

Being a New mom, found out I was pregnant when she was just 4 months.. mixed feelings. All my friends around me on birth control, or all talking about how they’re so not ready for more.
And other sources around me all against exactly what I’m dealing with. Social media these days all talking about it’s okay to not have kids to close in age etc.. what about the ones that do. How do we feel when so many people look down at us?
I needed to hear this.
So, thank you.
