“I did not regret not having children – We are not all made to be mothers”

Jessica Hawk-Ippolito, 52, has always known she did not want to have children. Everyone around her told her that at some point she would regret it.

Jessica, a teacher by profession, states today that not only did she not regret it, but she really likes the life she has made. “Even when I was little, I never played with dolls. I did not make the mom take care of her children. “My choice was and is very conscious and it gave me the opportunity to pursue my dreams”, he stated characteristically.

«I think both children and motherhood are amazing, but they are not for me despite what everyone says“, Says the 52-year-old woman, stating that she had come to this decision since she was a teenager as she wanted to focus on her career and make many trips around the world.

“When I had a relationship, I explained to my partners that motherhood was not in my immediate plans. If I became a mom, I would definitely stay home to raise my children and that would not make me happy. Everyone told me – and they still tell me – that I would regret it, but I did not regret it. We are not all made for moms».

When Jessica met her ex-husband, the couple was delighted to find out that neither of them wanted children. However, everyone asked them when they would become parents and even pressured them to move forward quickly.

But Jessica just wanted to go around the world. So far she has made many trips, while she had the opportunity to work as a teacher in many European countries. “I’ve had incredible experiences so far I did not have to think of anyone but myself“so I was able to take advantage of all the opportunities that were given,” he explains.

“People think I feel alone because I do not have children, but it is not true. Some even ask me who will take care of me when I grow old but I would never bring a child into the world to make me old! I love my life and I do not regret not having children».
