FLOW - Fulfilling Lives of Women

www.flow-japan.com/e

FLOW on Podcast is a Japanese show where the host Mayumi Boelens introduces and celebrates the diversity of life choices for women, married or unmarried. In each episode, she invites a childless woman either by choice or by circumstance (infertility, no partner, late marriage, missed the fertility window…etc) as well as a woman who became a mother through adoption.


If you are the one or know somebody who could be, she would love to hear from you.

Your life stories would inspire many women.
