Solo Mum by Choice (SMBC): A woman who takes motherhood into her own hands and choses to have a child on her own. This is typically achieved with the assistance of a sperm donor (known or anonymous), and can also include egg donation and adoption.

About me
and the show

6 weeks before I turned 40 my dreams of becoming a mother finally came true thanks to the generosity of an anonymous sperm donor. While it definitely wasn’t my plan A, I now wouldn’t have it any other way. I absolutely love life with my gorgeous daughter Alexandra and finally feel like I’ve found my purpose – she is my “why”.

With the No Need For Prince Charming podcast I’ve had the privilege of meeting so many inspiring women who have embarked on motherhood on their own terms. I hope if you are just starting out in this journey you’ll find each episode provides you with the advice, confidence and inspiration I wish I had. If you are already an SMBC, welcome to the village and please reach out if you would like to share your amazing story.
