Choosing Single Motherhood

The Definition of What Makes a Family Has Changed Through the Years

By Lucy Nalpathanchil and Libby Conn

Women who want children are no longer waiting for Mr. Right. In 1981, a New York woman started Single Mothers By Choice — a support network for working women who wanted to start a family before it was too late. Now thousands are single mothers by choice including women in Connecticut. Today, Where We Live, Lucy Nalpathanchil talks with local single mothers who gave birth or adopted a baby will talk about their decision and their experiences. We'll also speak to the Director of UConn’s Center for Advanced Reproductive Services about fertility options and a psychologist who counsels women before they venture into Single Motherhood.
