Trying

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

About half the members of Single Mothers by Choice are thinkers and tryers who are going through a similar journey. They have a wealth of information about resources and strategies, and can be a unique and invaluable support.

We will provide you with a network of women who are going through the same things as you are via our lively 24/7 private online discussion Forum and/or local chapter meetings. On the Forum you can learn about and discuss planning to Conceive or Adopt,  as well as the details of Trying to Conceive or Adopt. You can ask and find answers to the many questions you have from those in the same cycle, or those who share your due date, as well as from those ahead of you.

We encourage you to join SMC so that you have access to the abundance of information, experience, wisdom, and support of our members while you are trying to become a mother.

“After I joined SMC, I learned so much! One of the best things was not feeling alone. So many had gone before me, and if they could do it, then so could I! My local group was a great source of support and becoming an SMC was the best decision I've ever made.”
