I have a special interest in supporting women who are struggling to come to terms with not being able to have children.
Having to face involuntary childlessness can elicit a range of emotions which can feel both distressing and overwhelming. This may include experiencing a profound sense of loss as you grieve for the child and life that you had envisioned.
For many women this is often made worse because they find it difficult to share their feelings with friends, family and loved ones. Those around them may also find it difficult to understand or acknowledge the pain that they are going through. As a consequence, countless women suffer in silence.
This can be even more devastating for women of colour where in some Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Communities there has been a long-standing cultural silence about childlessness.
I have my own story of childlessness and from personal experience, know how valuable it was to have someone to talk to and share my story with. It may be hard to imagine now but a life without children can be rewarding and meaningful, different, but not less important or valuable. We can work together to help you find your way towards that. You don’t have to go through it all alone.
