Reflect and Renew: navigating the sometimes tricky ‘twixmas’ week as a childless woman


Amongst the myriad exhortations to move on from Christmas like you haven’t just survived the toughest day in the childless calendar, and throw yourself into the coming new year with gusto, we often ride roughshod over some of the less glamourous feelings that arise at this time of year. Feelings of loss, sadness, grief, wistfulness, regret and confusion which are so much a part of every life, and so often close to the surface for those of us living the life unexpected.

If this resonates with you, I thought you might find this recording of my Reflect & Renew webinar which I hosted 3 years ago during ‘twixams’ (the week between Christmas and New Year exploring the feelings that come up at this ‘in-between’ liminal moment in the year, and how to cope with them.

There are also questions from viewers on coping with difficult questions, navigating female friendships, self-care, grief work, ageing as a childless woman, childlessness in the workplace and more! I mention a lot of resources and I’ve listed them all at the end of the video and below.

Please sign up to my mailing list to know when we’ll be hosting our next free Gateway Women Masterclass and you can also download the introduction & first chapter of the new (2020) edition of my book, ‘Living the Life Unexpected’ here. I mention quite a few different sections from my book in this webinar and how they can be used to help understand or shift certain aspects of our experience as childless women. I know it can be daunting to read it, but why not just dip into the various bits I mention? You would also be welcome to join the live reading group for my book, hosted within the Childless Collective Community on MightyNetworks.

My wish for you this week is that the space created by letting go fills up with self-care, self-compassion and other lovely nourishing things.
