Goals of the group

To parent or to not parent. That is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. This group is a safe place for those who aren't sure whether they want to have kids, or not. The discussions will help you explore your own thought process. Realistically, you'll not reach a decision in 4 weeks but will have the tools to get started.

Who is the group for?

Anybody who finds themselves juggling these thoughts - men, women, non-binary, single, married, and partnered people.

“I’m afraid of losing my partner because he wants kids, and I don’t know what I want. I think I don’t want them.”
“I’m afraid of losing my identity, freedom, and comfort if I have children. Afraid of regretting it if I don’t.”
“I’ve always wanted to have a baby, but is it even ethical, knowing the environmental and political climate?”
“I need some peace and clarity from the torture of sitting on the fence for too long.”

  • Honestly, this session was great and after sharing it with our friends lots of people want to explore something similar.


    Truly confused

  • For the very first time found the validation that being confused is okay. Gave me confidence and understanding to start an objective conversation with my family.


    Career-oriented jet setter

  • Loved my peers and the discussion. Veena is a star.


    Would want kids if I were a guy

What are soulUp groups?

At SoulUp, you'll meet people who get what you're going through and might be living some of the same realities. People looking for extraordinary conversations, just like you.

What happens in a group session?

While the format can vary as per topic, here’s a flow that most sessions follow

Check In. Participants check-in with each others' feelings and answer the prompt given by the facilitator if any.

Conversation. Your facilitator will guide the group in a free-flowing conversation—with the goal of sharing openly, talking honestly, and deep emotional connection.

Check Out. Participants share what they're taking away from the session.

What am i going to get out of this?

Participants say that they feel heard, understood, more in control, and a feeling that you’ve got people rooting for you. By talking about your emotions and what's going on in your life, you'll realise that you're not alone and get ideas for how to improve your situation.
