For women of all ages who are wondering what childfree living looks like, later in life.
Your childfree life today is pretty damn swell.
But what will life without kids look like as you age?
Listen in as I host a panel of women aged 60+ who never had kids, for a discussion on topics including…
◇ Childfree regret and grief
◇ The ups and downs of aging without children
◇ What family means and looks like without kids
◇ How life is, over 60, when you don’t have kids
…and whatever questions YOU want to ask.
More than just a unique chance to hear from older women about their life without kids, Childfree Over 60 will give you the opportunity to explore and reflect on what this means for your own decision and life.
Here’s what’s in store for the event:
Get ready for a candid conversation featuring the questions and hot topics you’ve been wondering about, related to being childfree later in life.
Once the panel conversation is over, we’ll take things even deeper. Think journaling questions, coaching, and discussion to help you delve further into what this all means for you and your choice.

Lisette Schuitemaker is an author, impact investor, and board director, living in Amsterdam.
“In my thirties, it dawned on me slowly that having a family was a choice rather than an obligation. In my forties, I sold my company and met my partner. In my fifties, I trained as a healer and wrote my first book. In my sixties, I wrote the book Childless Living which with hindsight I would rather have called The Non-Parent Path. We who don’t have children walk a road less travelled by but how rich and rewarding to honour who we are and how our life wants to unfold.”

Ready to hear what it’s really like to be childfree as you age?
Listen, if you’re on the fence about kids (or maybe, are already decisively childfree), I know how much the question of future regret or later-in-life challenges can weigh on your mind.
Plus, if you’re anything like me, you might have literally no one you can ask. (My reference point for childfree women over 60 was historically, almost zero.)
That’s why I’m taking you straight to the source, for this intimate, 2-hour live event, Childfree Over 60.
