All your friends have joined the mom club and you’re feeling left out. It’s just so hard to bridge the gap. You know 1 in 5 women are childless, but where are they?
You daydream about connecting with women who understand your childless experience. Of conversations where diapers and bottles never come up.
Thinking of grabbing coffee with someone who shares your experience lights you up inside.
You imagine what it would feel like to give and receive support and validation. Friendships built on a shared understanding of what it’s like to be childless in a sea of moms.
I’d like to help you make the connections you’ve been dreaming about. The best news?
My four-year infertility journey ended with a hysterectomy in 2017. At the time, I didn’t have a single person in my life who was childless. It left me feeling alone and misunderstood. Some of the moms in my life were there to offer support, but I never felt like they REALLY got it.
In 2018, I started a blog and Instagram account called Chasing Creation. I hoped if I put my story out there it would resonate with others going through the same thing. And it did! Over the next year, I made incredible connections with vibrant, smart, funny, amazing childless women.
Since then, I’ve connected with literally thousands of childless women. So many of them have told me they feel disconnected, alone, and unseen in their childless experience. I wanted to use my background in community empowerment to create a hub for the childless community, so others could experience the power of connection like I have. It’s why I created this member directory and monthly virtual hangouts for you!
In addition to founding Chasing Creation, I hold a Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Georgia, with an emphasis in community empowerment and program development.
YOU’RE NOT ALONE, FRIEND. A poll of almost 400 childless women found that:
Trust me, you’re not alone in this experience. Being childless is still considered taboo and misunderstood by many. Like any taboo, it can be hard to know what type of reaction you’ll get when you talk about it. And there aren’t enough safe spaces for us to connect.
I’m hoping the Childless Collective will change that. I’d love to help you make new connections so you feel supported and understood in your childless experience.
I know how powerful these connections can be. They can bring healing, friendship and community. We’d love to have you join us!
After your purchase, you’ll be asked to provide a photo of a government-issued photo ID to confirm your identity. Both the identity verification and new accounts need admin approval. I do my best to approve new accounts within 24 hours. Once approved, you can start making connections right away. If you signed up for the BFF membership, you’ll get access to the monthly virtual events calendar and can join any upcoming hangouts!
The BFF virtual events will take place on the second Sunday of every month (unless this is a holiday, in which case it will be the following Sunday) at 11:00am PT; 2:00pm ET. This time works for most time zones across North and South America, Europe, and Africa. As a BFF member, you’ll have access to a community calendar with info for upcoming hangouts.
We can’t guarantee there will be other members in your local community. We hope that as the collective grows, it will be more likely members can connect with others locally. We’ve also added “tags” that can be applied to user profiles to describe their unique circumstances. This provides an additional way to connect with members who share similar circumstances, even if they don’t live nearby. Remember, online friends are real friends!
The Childless Collective is primarily for women who are childless not by choice, due to any circumstances. Women who are childfree by choice are welcome to join, however, keep in mind that the majority of members are childless not by choice. The Childless Collective IS NOT for women who are still trying to conceive or pursuing paths to parenthood, but for those who have accepted a life without kids.
Membership fees are non-refundable; the only exception being that you may cancel a renewed subscription by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within two (2) calendar days after renewal date and receive a full refund of the new subscription fees. You can also cancel your membership at any time through the customer hub.
Once your complementary trial period ends, your card will be charged the annual membership fee ($30 Friendship level, $50 BFF level). Your membership will automatically renew each subsequent year on the same date as the original transaction date.
Yes, the Childless Collective is only open for membership to childless women.
We require every user to provide a photo of a government-issued ID. This is to ensure that everyone who joins the collective is who they say they are. This creates a safer environment for connections to happen! We use an automated service to check ID’s. You can learn more about the company here.
The Friendship Map is private and the information is only accessible to members. Additionally, you will only provide your city to your profile, not your full address. This adds an additional layer of privacy.
No problem! DM me on Instagram at @Chasing.Creation or send an email over to email@example.com and I’ll get back to you within 3 business days.
