Hello, I’m Lesley, I’m childless and I believe passionately that you can have a fulfilling life when your dream of becoming a mother didn’t come true.

I’m the author of 'Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness; Inspiring Stories to Guide You to a Fulfilling Life.' You can read more & buy here 

And before you click away because you think I’m living in some sort of fantasy world, let me tell you three things to help;

  • I’ve stood where you’re standing now, telling myself that I’ll never be happy,
  • Despite that (and losing both parents), I can truly say that I am at peace with my past; I know who I am and I’m living a life I absolutely love.
  • It’s not just me saying this, others have walked this path, and they are also showing up in the world as themselves and living a fulfilling life without the children they desperately wanted.

I know you can have this too and you don’t have to believe me yet. All I ask that you read on with an  open mind.

Let’s pause for a moment and take a step back.

You wanted to be a mother and for some reason it didn’t happen. You’re feeling devastated, sad, angry, disappointed, (etc, etc)

And mostly…you’re hiding your true self from the world.

And it hurts. A lot.

What if you could spend time with other women who know your pain and can show you how to uncover your true self and banish the hurt for good?

Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

Welcome, you’re in exactly the right place.

Here you will find blogs to support you, Inspiring Stories of other women who have walked this path, and more information on Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness, the book I’ve written about my own journey.

If you’d like to start your journey to rediscovering your joy, pop your name in the box below to receive an extract from the book, and to receive updates delivered straight to your inbox.


I know exactly what it takes to get from where you are now to leading an authentic and full life because I’ve walked that path myself. In Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness, I use my own experience, those of 19 other childless women, and my skills as a coach and NLP Master Practitioner to guide you gently through the pain and out the other side to find your joy again.
