Are you panicking because your biological clock is ticking but you haven't found the right partner yet?
Are you wondering whether to give up on dating for a while to become a mother on your own?
Is the idea of using a sperm donor freaking you out?
Are looking for support and guidance as you research options and work through your concerns about becoming a single mom?
Are you feeling alone and overwhelmed as you try to get pregnant or undergo fertility treatments?
Are you worried about boring your friends with updates about trying to get pregnant?
Are you looking for a thoughtful, supportive group of women who get it to develop long-terms bonds for years to come?
Are you struggling to find people who want to dive into the minutia of these decisions. It's hard to find people you trust who can help without doubting your plan or imposing their fears on you.
Do you flip between conviction and an endless stream of doubts and concerns? One moment you might feel clear and steadfast in your decision and the next moment you might find yourself ruminating and spinning with indecision, doubts and fears.
Have you decided to take the leap, but you're overwhelmed by an endless number of decisions to be made? Each one feels incredibly significant--like choosing a sperm donor, deciding what treatment to pursue, and when to start.
Becoming a single mom by choice is a great option for many women. But it's not a choice women make without thinking through all the options, concerns and fears. Many women find it takes them quite some time to pull the trigger and become a mother by themselves. And once they do make the choice, they are faced with seemingly endless decisions alone. And worse yet, the constant up and downs of trying to get pregnant.
Most women find themselves asking:
Hi, I'm Sarah Kowalski, a single mom by choice, and attorney turned life coach. When I was trying to decide whether to become a single mom, I struggled alone -- doing all the research, processing all my concerns and handling all the ups and downs alone. Then when I started trying to conceive I had continual ups and downs, constant decisions and often found it hard to find someone who understood that I could talk to.
Looking back, if I'd had someone who had walked this path before me and understood the decisions I faced and the emotional wrangling that comes with reimagining motherhood, I would have saved myself so much time and heartache.
By joining a Tribe Support Group you'll get my expertise as a life coach, fertility doula, childbirth educator, and postpartum doula.
But you also get the collective expertise and wisdom of an intimate group of women who are facing the same concerns who can empower, teach and support each other.
Stabilize in your deepest knowing and intuition so you can make a plan and move forward with confidence. Shift your mind and body to create lasting change.
Process your concerns and doubts rather than avoiding them. Get new insights and perspectives that can help you resolve your concerns and move forward.
Journey together with a group of women facing the same issues. Share resources as well as updates along the way. Many women report that the friendships they made during this process stick with them for years to come.
Recognize the messages about motherhood you were given and rewrite your own narrative to match your current circumstances
Move through your doubts and concerns with pointed reflection, discussion with others and support. Share resources. Plus, tons of the research is done for you saving you time and energy.
Worried you could inundate your friends and family with the multitude of decisions you need to make that feel life altering? Build a community of women who get it and want to hear all your questions and concerns.
Deep dive into specific topics with an intimate group of like-minded women.

Simply put, this is the research done for you. I've taken all my knowledge and condensed it into the content vault.

The content vault covers every stage of the journey from Thinking to Mothering so that you can decide what feels relevant now. Shortcut the necessary research, answer nagging questions and give yourself the tools to have informed conversations with doctors, providers, friends, and your future child.
The vault also covers how to emotionally prepare and make the decision to become a single mom such has how to let go of self-blame, how to gather support from family and friends, how to stop ruminating about finances so you can make a smart choice and move on. Packed with exercises for self reflection and action taking.
Every week, we'll meet on Zoom to check in with each other and dive into a particular subject of interest to the group. I'll always be supporting you to develop and clarity and say no to the voice of doubt and anxiety. You'll develop a special bond with other women at the exact same stage of the journey as you. Other women have reported that hearing where others are at in the process greatly helps them understand what's coming and how to prepare for the future, as well as providing an invaluable support network with wisdom from everyone.
We meet Monday nights at 5:30 PST, 8:30 EST.
Connect with everyone in the group anytime day or night. Continue the conversation, share resources, updates and support. Create lasting friendships. There's no reason to feel alone on this journey--we're here for you.
By joining a support group, you'll get a dedicated discussion group for your small group in addition to access to the main discussion board.
By quieting the noise of the body, the mind can become clear and you are more capable of listening to your own wisdom and intuition. Throughout, I will be teaching you lots of techniques to help quiet your mind and lessen your anxiety that draw upon my own background in Feldenkrais and Qigong, but also incorporate whatever practices you know and love.
"Sarah stands as a woman of grace and true warriorship. She has walked the path and offers wise, kind service to other women just venturing or needing a hand on their way. Her intelligence matches her compassion, a mixture of grace and clarity that can midwife women to their true calling!"
Sarah is a fantastic resource! I've been considering having a child on my own, as a single mom, for some time now, and Sarah is offering a much-needed service to help guide women through this process. There are so many choices involved in this journey, from the medical options, to how to set your life up to care for a child, to the emotional issues. Sarah is a treasure trove of information.
It's really wonderful to have a knowledgeable, kind, supportive person like Sarah, with personal experience going through this process, as a coach and guide.

Mentorship and Coaching for any stage of the journey
I ran a similar group to this with a firm beginning and end date. I found that at the end, the women did not want to stop having group calls--they wanted to stay in contact and connecting each week. Plus it was hard set a start date that accommodated various women's needs of women all at different stages of the journey. By making this a rolling admission, women can join when it feels relevant and leave when they feel they've gotten the support they need.
Level 1 includes the entire Content Vault covering every stage of the journey, as well as a general community forum so that you can raise topics and questions with women from every stage of the journey. I'm adding value to this level all the time so soon, it will also include guest expert conference calls, discounts and more.
Level 2 Mastermind Memberships is an add-on available to Level 1 members and provides you intimate access to me with a small group of women at the exact same stage of the journey, as well as a community forum just for those women currently in the Mastermind Membership.
If you decide to cancel your Mastermind Membership, you can choose to remain a member of the Level 1 membership or cancel completely.
Of course there are always free groups and listservs you can join. But many women find that it's hard to get their questions answered. What's more it feels impossible to make lasting connections with the women in the groups. In this course, we are going through a process with a group of women in exactly same position as you. In free online message boards or Facebook groups, your'e in a big group with women at all stages of the motherhood journey. They are a great place to get an overview and some tips but it's hard to get a deep dive into your concerns. Members are answering questions on their Smartphones with not a lot of forethought. It can be hard to get clear answers.
This group will follow a process, carefully helping you think through many aspects of becoming a mother so that you don't have a baby and pine over a different life. You'll clear out a lot of the baggage that can surface when you least expect it. And, you'll save yourself time and heartache by having a team of women ready to support you.
Absolutely! This course is designed to support women as they are thinking and trying. The group calls will support you no matter what. If you are still thinking, you get to hear from women who are already trying and understand the process more completely. And for those who are trying you have the support system of the group to help you navigate difficult choices, or understanding medical jargon etc.
Many of the topics we cover are still relevant after you've already made the decision to become a single mom by choice --like how to deal with the opinions of others and how to feel confident about your finances. And, regardless, you will have the support of a group of powerful women going through a similar experience.
The Content Vault will be available as soon as we launch. It's already jam packed with materials but I'll be constantly adding more. You will have access for as long as you are member though you will have the ability to download the worksheets to keep for your own reference regardless of whether you continue to be a member.
The live calls will be scheduled during business hours (Central Standard Time).
Not to worry. All calls will be recorded so you can access them later. And, you can post your questions before the calls and I will answer them during the call.
