Speaking on Today show, Gabrielle Union explains how she has been battling with critiques who blamed her career for her subsequent failure to have a child.

‘Having a career is not the price that you pay for any ill.’I think TV shows and film kind of make the frigid, you know single-focused career woman, that her career is the root of all of the problems in her life,’ Can’t find a man, it’s the career. Marriage falls apart, it’s the career!…and that’s just not the case.’If you happen to have issues with fertility as you’ve gotten older and you happen to have a career, all is not lost…there are so many options, and you’re not alone.’

People need to take a chill pill and stop accusing women falsely, you never know what they are going through.

  1. Age is of course a big factor when your’e trying to conceive. And if a woman chooses her career over having kids, so be it. If she’s not ready, she’s not ready. Just like with men who are not ready to propose marriage and start a family with the woman they’re dating. As long as she knows and have accepted what struggles she will face in the future, then that is her decision to make. I struggled too, but not in my 40s, and only conceiveeasy worked for me. Baby dusts to Gabrielle.!!
