About

I am 44 years and 9 months old and on my journey of finding my plan B. 12 months ago I learnt that I would not become a mother which took me by surprise as it was something that I was not prepared for. Becoming a mother is a natural and expected part of being a women, for as long as I could remember people were asking when will I have children. Well I got married and 5 years on that time never came and my hopes and expectations were rapidly replaced with grief, a grief that I found hard to comprehend.

That was the start of my journey, the start of me discovering a life without the children I hoped for. So welcome to my story and thank you for being part of my journey, complete with the tears and joy. Thank you for joining me on my road to finding my plan B…

  1. Dear Yvonne,

    I recently became aware of your childlessness experience and awareness work on the topic.
    I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Psychology, Cardiff University. I have been doing research on the experience of childlessness in general, but also how this can be framed by ethnicity and culture.
    I recently conducted this project with BME women and was wondering if you would find of any value to so something similar with black women.

    Would love to hear back from you to discuss this further.
    Best, Sofia Gameiro
