Welcome to Gateway Women, the global friendship and support network for childless women.
Whether you’re childless due to infertility or circumstance you’re in the right place. Pull up a chair. Get a cup of tea or something stronger and make yourself comfortable. Things are just about to get a whole lot easier.
Join our fabulous private online Community on MightyNetworks A supportive, intelligent, friendly, compassionate, private online community of ID-checked women like us from all over the world who ‘get’ what it’s like to be a childless woman in our motherhood-obsessed society. It’s free for the first month and then free/modest fee thereafter and you’ll also have access to our other communities too, including a reading group for my book, one for women who are both single & childless and many others. Find out more here.
We have always offered reduced subscription plans and/or payment holidays for anyone who needs one, so if you’re feeling financially vulnerable because of Coronavirus, please don’t let that put you off joining us. We’re also creating many new ways to support each other through this crisis.
Read my book Living the Life Unexpected: How to Find Hope, Meaning and Fulfilling Future Without Children. Now in its 2nd edition (March 2020) and with fifty amazing endorsements + 60+ heartfelt reader reviews on Amazon, this has become a much loved classic guide to recovering from the heartbreak of involuntary childlessness and finding hope for a new kind of life – the life unexpected. You can download a free sample of the introduction and chapter 1 here and reviews and bookshops/online order links here. You can join my live reading group in our online community, whichever chapter of the book you’re on. And you can read my blog, When the title of your book becomes the same as the news – Living the Life Unexpected: Reflections on childlessness during a pandemic.
Sign up for my monthly reflections email and read my ongoing experiences on embracing and inhabiting my unchosen childless identity, as well being first in line to book onto my free webinars, find out where I’ll be speaking and nab a spot at a Reignite Weekend when they open for booking – they often sell out very quickly. (I never share your email or bombard you with stuff; I don’t have time to write them and you don’t have time to read them!) You can also follow me on Instagram @GatewayWomen.
Join our free, private, global social groups organized via Meetup – we have groups for UK & Ireland, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia & Israel and you can find out more details about all of them here.
Our face-to-face Meetups are currently on-hold due to Coronavirus. However, many of our GW Meetup Hosts are meeting online and we also have several virtual GW Meetups each month organised via the GW Online Community. Come and join us there!
We have had to cancel all our live Reignite Weekends in 2020 due to public health restrictions. We are in the process of developing an Online Reignite Weekend which will launch on the weekend of 3/4 October. Please be sure to sign up to our once-a-month email update list to be the first to know about them when booking opens!
