Our members benefit from SMC peer support in local chapters all over the US, and Canada, and/ or through our active 24/7 online private discussion Forum.

Through our chapters and Forum, we are delighted to share our experiences, wisdom, and resources about single motherhood by choice, including discussion on Thinking and Preparing to Become an SMC, Donor Insemination, Adoption, Parenting (from infants to kids in college, and beyond!), and our Cohort Threads for those trying to conceive in the same cycle, or who are pregnant and share a due date.

Our Newsletters include articles of interest, discount codes for some popular sperm banks, and other important information for our members.

Expert guidance on your SMC Journey!

“I joined SMC when my son was a baby, and he's about to turn 21! The wealth of knowledge and support I've received from SMC got me through some really hard times and I found some great friends. We are a diverse group, and yet we are wholeheartedly there for one another.”
