A child – yes or no? What is critical for this decision – and who already regrets making this decision? With stories and myths, truth and lies, Julia Förster and Christian Wehmeier dedicate themselves fully to the topics of wanting to have a child, birth and being a parent. In doing so, they deconstruct the release of hormones and feelings of happiness, family norms and role models, expectations and challenges.
