What Makes Our Community Special?

Motherhood Reimagined provides a safe space to share and learn from each other where your peers provide thoughtful advice and share their vulnerabilities to inspire and guide our journeys. 

 

Together we can show the world that becoming a mother outside of partnership isn't shameful or always a back up plan, but an awesome empowered path to becoming the mom you're yearning to be. 

 

We’re here to provide support and guidance so you can be the confident, badass, grounded mother you knew you were always meant to be.

 

Imagine feeling supported and seen throughout all aspects of your journey--not having to explain yourself and feel frustrated about your friends that genuinely want to help, but just don't really get it (and always manage to say the wrong thing). 

Wouldn’t it be amazing to be part of a group of women who've been there, who can help you process the roller coaster of emotions, listen beyond your confusion and help you make your life simpler and more full of joy no matter what stage of the SMC journey you are in?

What people are saying

“Before joining, I wasn't ready to give up on partnership and I was worried about acceptance from family. Through the group I felt the empowerment that can come from this decision instead of it feeling like a consolation prize. And, I am moving forward with fertilizing some of my frozen eggs to try to make embryos. I thought I would do this eventually but I am ready to move forward with this."

“After feeling stuck for a year, Sarah helped me  manage my emotions, uncertainty and doubt and expertly guided me to a strong place where I finally felt ready to take the next steps to becoming an SMC.”

"You should definitely join! Meeting other women in the same situation was so incredibly helpful. It was an incredible safe space to be vulnerable and learn from other women in the same position.”

Talking About Donor Conception

Why You Should Join?

How would it feel to hear panels of SMC’s answer questions on hot topics such as donor siblings, dating, having more than one child, embryo donation, juggling career and parenting and more? It’s so powerful to get more that one perspective on these topics and be able to ask them questions directly. 

 

And, most importantly, imagine having clarity about your choices: Not only dropping the doubt, but feeling empowered and clear on every step of the journey. 

 

But maybe you’re wondering if the Motherhood Reimagined SMC Community is right for you?

 

It's right for you if: 

  • You're yearning for more community and connection
  • You're at any stage of the SMC journey
  • You want to both contribute and learn from others
  • You want to connect with other women in your local area or in the same stage of the journey as you.
  • You love my podcast but would love to be able to ask my guest questions during a live interview.

 

 

It's not right for you if: 

  • You don't want to connect with women at any stage of the single mom by choice journey
  • You want to remain isolated throughout your journey
  • You don't believe in the power of community
