Dealing with ‘Involuntary Childlessness’:
Finally realising that your dream of having your own biological children is over can be soul destroying. For many people, they are left questioning their identity.
‘The Dovecote’ is an organisation established to enable people facing ‘involuntary childlessness’ to obtain the support, strategies, knowledge and experiences to discover a renewed life of passion and purpose, which often feels impossible during this journey. Inspired by her own personal experience of infertility, loss and involuntary childlessness, Kelly Da Silva, founded ‘The Dovecote’ to share the knowledge, research, training and tools gained through her own personal journey, which can be attested to provide others with the same ability to deal with the challenges ‘involuntary childlessness’ brings.

The National Fertility Awareness Week is Monday 31st October to Sunday 6th November 2016. It is your week; save the dates now and please join us in raising awareness of the couples who struggle to become parents.
Fertility issues are all too often misrepresented and misunderstood. It’s common for media attention to be focused on stereotypes of fertility struggles: the 30 – or 40 – something career woman who’s left it too late; the against-the-odds IVF success story or the woman who’s apparently easily come to terms with childlessness – but this is far from the real picture.
Our programmes offer a tailored toolkit of self-exploration, personal development and growth, helping those who wish to live with passion and purpose.
The Dovecote offers a FREE online sanctuary to those who are looking to connect with other women at the ‘moving on’ stage in their fertility journey.
Come and join this PRIVATE community to discuss the highs and lows of ‘involuntary childlessness’. There are a range of topics that you can share your thoughts, feelings and be inspired by others which fully understand your situation.
