Hi, I’m Mel. I empower single women to understand their options for starting a family.

With a professional coaching qualification, 3 years of personal development coaching and having gone through IVF to have my daughter with donor sperm, I am able to help you understand your options and support you through the process through consultancy, mentoring and coaching.
