Maureen and Mom AMISingle Mothers by Choice (SMC) was founded by Jane Mattes, L.C.S.W., a psychotherapist and single mother by choice, in 1981. Since then, over 30,000 thinkers, tryers, and mothers have enjoyed the benefits of membership.

A Single Mother by Choice is a single woman who decides to become a mother knowing, at least at the outset, that she will be the sole parent of her child. Our primary purpose is to provide strong peer support and information to women who are considering, or have chosen, single motherhood.

Our members connect with one another through local chapters all over the US, and in Canada, Europe, and beyond, and/or through our lively 24/7 online private discussion Forum and Newsletter. We are delighted to share our experiences, wisdom, and resources about Donor Insemination, Adoption, all stages of Parenting, and much, much more.
