  1. Clare

    I have just finished the “choosing solo” course and found it incredibly uplifting and inspiring. It covered all the issues and fears that I have spent months grappling with in a very practical and honest way. Mel is a fantastic coach who is very open in her approach and and offers sensible, practical information and advice. I would recommend this programme for anyone at an early stage of their thoughts about solo motherhood. I found it of real benefit to be able to share experiences with women in similar circumstances.

  2. Lucy

    This was a very informative course which really helped me consolidate my thinking and feelings about this venture. Mel is extremely responsive and happy to go the extra mile to ensure she can answer your specific questions. The 3 evenings were well divided to cover different components of the decision making process, and it gave me confidence, thinking that I had already considered a lot of the aspects mentioned, as well as new ideas and food for thought. I found the online format a little daunting at first but this worked well too.

  3. Louise

    I found Mel’s coaching sessions really informative and helpful in helping me to make decisions about how to move forward. It was great to have the support of the other women on the course and it was fabulous having the chance to ask questions and share experiences! I’d highly recommend this course!

  4. Jess

    I really enjoyed the course and took a lot from it, it’s very informative and really helps you to break down the different elements if you are in the thinking stages of going solo. It includes a lot of practical information but also how to manage the anxiety of it all, it’s also nice being in a group just to reaffirm that you are not alone in choosing the solo path. I would definitely recommend this course if you are considering going solo or are in the process of it already! Thanks Mel!

    I’ve just completed this course and it was amazing. Mel covered so much information and detail over the three weeks. She was so encouraging and happy to answer any questions and fears. The course offers so many useful resources and you get a copy of the slides every week which is really useful to refer back to. I think any woman considering solo motherhood should do this course. This course has confirmed that my decision to embark on solo motherhood is the right decision for me.

  6. Tracy (verified owner)

    I already knew that I wanted to become a solo mum but Mel’s Choosing Solo course has given me to confidence to go for it! Apart from being able to benefit from Mel’s wealth of knowledge and experience, having the opportunity to meet other women in a similar situation was invaluable to me.

  7. Jane (verified owner)

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about becoming a solo mum. I’ve been thinking about this for a number of years, and at the end of last year decided to start making steps. I am so pleased I found Mel, and her The Stork and I page and tribe. This course has been incredible. Not only Mel sharing her experiences, but also getting to meet other women in the same situation as me.

    The course is over three weeks, and goes through so much more than I expected. From making that initial decision, and everything else that you will go through and things to consider. Some I’d not even thought of myself.
    Very encouraging, very helpful and has just made me more confident in my decision to follow this path. Thanks Mel.

    Thank you Mel for this amazing opportunity to benefit from your wealth of knowledge and experience in exploring solo motherhood. Whilst I had made my decision prior to the course, it was invaluable to really take time to think, plan and meet others in the same boat. I have so much more confidence in my decision, the route to solo motherhood is so much more normalised and I feel reassured by all the support available. Thank you.

  9. Eleanor (verified owner)

    A fabulous course – so much information and support for anyone considering this journey. Great to meet so others too in a similar situation. Came away from each session feeling even more positive about taking the next step…would highly recommend!

  10. Lizzie (verified owner)

    An excellent and hugely recommended course for anyone considering this path. So happy I connected with Mel and the amazing women on this course !

  11. Jo (verified owner)

    I highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about solo motherhood, or has made the decision to go ahead but would like more information and/or to meet other ladies in a similar situation. The course is packed full of amazing advice, information and helpful tips, covering so many aspects of this decision. The best part for me was meeting and talking to other ladies who are in the same position, and sharing concerns and questions. Mel lead the course brilliantly and provided detailed slides with all topics covered. Book it now!

  12. Lisa

    I can’t say enough good things about this course and how helpful it has been to me on this journey! Going into the class, my thoughts were like ping pong balls – bouncing all over the place and constantly changing direction. Mel established simple, but effective frameworks for how to think through things and organize the chaos of my thoughts. Even now, a few months later, I still regularly refer back to the course materials for a refresh on certain subjects. Fingers crossed that if I am able to become pregnant, I will definitely register for some of her follow up courses. Best of luck to everyone on their paths!

  13. Ruth (verified owner)

    I cannot recommend this course highly enough. It provided me with so much invaluable information about the journey to solo motherhood and the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. Mel offers a supportive space to explore fears and uncertainty around the topic and I now feel better equipped and more confident to make a decision about whether or not to pursue this path. I would recommend the course to anyone considering becoming a solo mum!

  14. Philly

    I can thoroughly recommend this course. It has really helped me look at all aspects of the solo mum adventure, answering questions I was too worried to ask. I’ve also managed to gain a network of wonderful ‘potential’ solo mums to be.

  15. Kat (verified owner)

    For any woman considering solo motherhood I would highly recommend this course. It’s full of really valuable information, exercises to work through in your own time, recommendations for podcasts, webinars, books etc and on top of all that, the chance to connect with other women in the same situation. Mel is knowledgeable, warm and welcoming. Thank you!

  16. Claire (verified owner)

    A really reassuring course that has given a number of tools. With Mel’s guidance and being able to meet and speak/hear from the other women on the journey – I feel less alone. Packed full of information and recommendations. Highly recommend (and have already done so to a few friends!).

  17. Carol Beaumont (verified owner)

    A really useful group to meet a wide range of like minded women. It was really helpful to read and discuss a wealth of information that is well presented in a supportive way. For anyone who is either undecided I would recommend this as a great starting point to explore solo motherhood.
