Meet the Champion: Meriel Whale, Brighton

"I wanted to be a Mum more than anything else in the world. When I finally realised it was not going to be possible, I decided to turn my energies towards supporting childless not by choice people and set up my own counselling business to provide practical and emotional support.

World Childless Week is important because we need connection, we need to see ourselves reflected in the world and we need to be visible. I'm delighted to be a part of that. Also, as a woman who is part of the LGBTQ+ community, I am proud to bring this aspect of my life to World Childless Week, helping to raise awareness of all members of this community who, for various reasons, were unable to have the children they wanted".
