If you’re single and looking to start a family, we can help. Our supportive and experienced staff will guide you through choosing the best process for you, using donated sperm with either intrauterine insemination or IVF treatment.
Through our Patient Support Partners network, we also offer support that goes beyond clinical advice with access to counselling and fertility coaching services which may be of benefit when considering the wider emotional and practical aspects that go with considering starting a family as a solo parent.
Fertility coach and RHG Patient Support Partner Mel Johnson created The Stork and I to empower single women to understand their options for starting a family following her own experience of IVF with donor sperm which resulted in the birth of her daughter. She offers three different online group coaching courses covering the different stages of solo motherhood, each run remotely for up to eight participants at a time.
‘Going Solo’ is for those still considering their options, covering topics such as making the decision to start your fertility journey as a single woman, grieving for letting go of the traditional route to motherhood, getting your friends and family on board, reviewing your finances and your options, choosing a clinic or alternative path, choosing a suitable treatment or method of conception, choosing a donor, preparing yourself and your body for your fertility journey, managing treatment solo, your support network and planning for the future.
‘Preparing to thrive’ is for those who have already undergone treatment and are now pregnant whilst ‘Thriving solo’ offers support and advice on life as a solo mum after the birth of your baby.
Mel also offers one to one support and mentoring for those who feel this approach would be more beneficial than joining a network group, with an initial 30 minute Skype consultation to review your situation and objectives free of charge.
