If you are thinking about single motherhood, or have already decided to become a Single Mother by Choice, you don’t have to be alone on your journey.
For over 40 years, SMC has been providing a welcoming community for guidance and exceptional support.

  • Thinking?

    You do not have to go through this decision-making process by yourself. So many of our members tell us that they wish they had joined SMC earlier.

  • Trying?

    Trying to Conceive (TTC) or Adopt can be a stressful time. There are so many potential ups and downs in the process.

  • Pregnant?

    When you become pregnant as a single woman, it can feel like a great accomplishment. It can also feel a bit lonely at times.

  • Parenting?

    You may be a single parent but you don’t need to parent alone. No one can know what it’s like to be the sole parent quite as well as another sole parent.

Group for Moms

SMC founder Jane Mattes, LCSW, hosts small groups on Zoom about “The Daddy Questions”, geared especially towards new moms. The next Moms Group will be held on Wednesday, March 8th from 7:30-9 PM ET.

We will address questions such as:

How and when to tell your child about their origin story.

Who is my “Daddy”?

Do I have a Daddy?

Where is my Daddy? and more.
