After The Storm
Hi I'm Sarah, my mission is to help as many of you as possible to go from a painful past to a purposeful and passionate future. It’s that simple!
There’s nothing quite like a broken dream to really leave you feeling damaged, shattered and wondering what the heck your purpose is then if it isn’t to have children, like everyone else. That was me, not so very long ago. After many years of trying, one miscarriage and many, many medical treatments, I was informed that it just simply wouldn’t be possible for me to have children naturally. And that’s why I created After the Storm, because it takes a lot of guts and determination to get to acceptance.
Beyond the Empty Womb
Hi, I’m Suzan Muir and this November I’m are offering a 5 day eco-retreat, ‘Beyond the Empty Womb,’ for women who are childless not by choice.The retreat will be held on our land in the Grampians, Australia. I’m also CNBC and after several years of profound grief work I’m now living my life from a place of deep acceptance. My professional background is in nursing, wilderness guiding and rite of passage facilitation. I regularly lead nature based experiences for women.
This peer supported retreat provides the opportunity to be heard and witnessed in a carefully facilitated group discussion circle. Each day we will be engaging with contemplative forest walks and guided nature based meditation. The themes we will be exploring are self care, grief, creativity, inspiration and connection.The last two days of the retreat are designed to explore what is meaningful in our lives beyond the dream of children.

Women without children Loving the world
I've gone through the pain and hurt of my situation. No that's not true. I haven't gone "through it." It's still there, every day, and it doesn't go away. But I've learned to use that pain, to channel it into something creative.
But that's not all. I'm going to help you share your story too. I've developed a program that will help women without children work with their grief and pain and turn it into something wonderful. Into something that will help heal ourselves and the people we reach. We have a unique perspective and view of the world that the world needs to hear.

Melanie Drage Tapping Into Change
You care far too much about what other people think of you. Maybe you put everyone elses needs before your own and find it so hard to say no. Your confidence, self belief and overall self esteem is at an all time low. You feel anxious, exhausted and lack motivation and so desperately want to change this but don’t know how.
You’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work. You just want to feel happy again, ‘normal’ even.
I have been there and I understand how you’re feeling right now. The good news is – I can help.
Meriel Whale Counselling
Meriel Whale is childless not by choice, and offers counselling to men and women in the same position. She also offers general counselling to all aged 16+. She qualified in 2010 from Brighton University.
Talking to a counsellor can help us understand events in our lives, identify and express our emotions and talk about things that distress us to the point that we're struggling to cope. It can enable us to resolve difficult situations and feelings, make positive changes and move forward with renewed confidence, self belief and a sense of wellbeing. Accepting the idea of a different future to the one you have envisaged is a brave decision and it can bring with it feelings of loss, anger and profound sadness. No one has experienced childlessness in quite the same way as anyone else.
We all need to tell our story in our own way and it can be very helpful to talk to a professional at this time.
