The reasons for someone not having a child, whether by choice, chance or circumstance, are varied and vast. For some females, it is known early in their lives that a given medical diagnosis will determine their fertility, and for others, it may be undefined infertility later in life, or even the unforeseen consequences of cultural practices, which lead to not having children.
Some of the topics we have discussed to date on New Legacy Radio are still often deemed to be taboo; from childlessness, to the unspoken realities of IVF and the lack of transparency and accountability around reproductive technologies. We believe these are necessary, inclusive and compassionate conversations to have in this space.
Today we will speak with Angela Peabody, the Executive Director & Founder of Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation, who is on the forefront of legal accountability which addresses Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) practices, and support for survivors of FGM. We will discuss what FGM is, the experiences of survivors, and the reproductive impact on women who have experienced FGM.
Join us for this in-depth, compassionate conversation, to bring about greater awareness of these experiences, and in recognition of FGM survivors who are part of our collective community of people without children.
