This September sees the launch of two brand new 12 week groups for Gateway Women: ‘Still Hopeful’ and ‘Reignite’. You can try out either group for just £50 and see if the Gateway Women approach is for you.
STILL HOPEFUL – STARTS WEDNESDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER (4 places left)
If you are gripped by the silent misery and toxic shame of thwarted motherhood, this group is for you.
The pioneering ‘Still Hopeful’ Group meets each Wednesday evening from 7.30-9pm from Wednesday 5th September for 12 weeks. This is the first group of its kind in the world and is filling up fast (4 places left at time of writing).
Each week we’ll unpick and unpack all the stuff that nobody lets you talk about, and give it a fresh airing. By the end of the 12 weeks you’ll be better informed, better supported and will have a much clearer idea of your plans and options going forward. As this material it aimed at hopeful mothers-to-be, it will also include a myth-busting session on fertility options for the later mother, and will also discuss ‘doing it alone’ – a phrase that is thrown at you as if it were no more taxing than getting your hair done, and another reason that single, childless women in particular beat themselves up: “Because if I really wanted a baby, surely I’d be prepared to go to any lengths…”
Whether you’re single or partnered, struggling with fertility issues or who-knows-I-haven’t-had-a-chance-to-find-out, come and join us and give yourself a break from beating yourself up!
REIGNITE! STARTS MONDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER (8 places left)
Claim your place for a fantastic Autumn with a group of women who totally get what it’s like to be childless in a mummy-mad world!
Following hot on the heels of the fabulous Reignite! weekend in July, this 12-week group is for you if you’re no longer able to have a biological child of your own, but are a bit stumped as to what’s next! It meets every Monday evening from 7.30-9pm from Monday 10th September for 12 weeks.
Each week, we’ll look at a different aspect of the whole ‘baby thing’ and explore what’s happened to you on a personal, societal and cultural level. You’ll find new ways to make peace with your circumstances, rediscover what lights your fire, and get help, inspiration and support as you make a plan to make the best of the rest of your life.
If you’re ready to relight your fire and passion for life, but are feeling a bit too stunned by how life’s worked out to take the next step, come and join us. Your ‘Plan B’ for a meaningful and fulfilling life without children awaits you!
THESE ARE THE ONLY GROUPS OF THEIR KIND IN THE WORLD – COME AND BE A GATEWAY WOMEN PIONEER THIS AUTUMN AND LET’S BUST THE TABOOS THAT SILENCE US!
Both Gateway Women Groups meet in a private studio room at the gorgeous and intimate EVOLVE Wellness Centre, tucked away in a quiet mews in London’s South Kensington (2 mins from Picadilly & District Line). Sessions cost £25 each, bookable and payable in advance. The Groups are run on strictly first-name only basis so that you can feel comfortable to share what you need to. Places are strictly limited to a maximum of 12 women to ensure an intimate and supportive experience. All sessions are strictly confidential.

Jody, you know that I would love to go but I am in the U.S. I am still grateful for this site, and glad that my British counterparts can benefit from the resources you have made available in the UK. You’re doing a great thing by keeping up this site and holding these events. God bless.
Have you considered offering these courses on-line, perhaps allowing people to participate through a pod cast? I’m sure there are many women living outside of London who are interested in your courses but it’s not viable for them to attend each week.
Yes, I am planning to make them available on-line by the end of this year. There are women from all over the world who would like to have access to them, and I’m in the process of learning how to make it possible!
If you’re based in the UK, I will be offering both courses as weekend workshops, each one running over the course of 2 weekends.
If you make sure you’re on the Gateway Women Events Mailing List http://eepurl.com/kKC7v you’ll be the first to know of new products and events as they’re announced this Autumn.
Thanks for you comment – I’m onto it!
