Embracing Childless Elderhood with Jody Day

Aging without children is one of the biggest fears of childless women. Join Jody Day as she shares her wisdom on how we can embrace childless elderhood. Engaging with our elderhood planning helps us feel much less fearful about it. Instead, we find ourselves focusing on what we really want our elderhood to look and feel like, and what steps we need to take to make that a reality.

The event is finished.
