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.
A supportive, intelligent, friendly, compassionate, safe, private online membership community of ID-checked women like us from all over the world who ‘get’ what it’s like to be us in our motherhood-obsessed society. It’s free for the first month and then a modest (or donation-based) fee thereafter (as suits your circumstances) 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 35+ others. And with our face-to-face Gateway Gatherings currently on-hold due to the pandemic (except in NZ and Australia!) many of our GG Hosts are meeting online in the UK, Ireland, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, NZ and Israel. And we also have our Gateway Women Zoom Cafes meeting almost weekly! For more information click here. And to join/access go to www.gw-community.com Whether online or in-person, if you want to connect with other childless women, come and join in our private online community! Any questions, please email GW’s Operations Director Karin Enfield at email@example.com

Download a free chapter of the new edition of Jody's book Living the Life Unexpected: How to Find Hope, Meaning and Fulfilling Future Without Children.
First self-published in 2013, and now in its 2nd edition with Bluebird/PanMacmillan (March 2020), supported by 50 prestigious endorsements and 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.
Share in my ongoing experiences on embracing and inhabiting my unchosen childless identity (read a recent one here) 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.
