Hi, I’m Mel!

I’m the UK’s first and only Solo Parenthood Coach.

I founded The Stork and I following my own personal journey to solo motherhood. I’m a solo mum (single mother by choice) to my 4 year old daughter.

I work with women from around the world who are single and keen to ensure they don’t miss out on parenthood.

My coaching practise is dedicated to providing support and advice to single women at every stage of their journey. I’ve coached 1000s of women on this subject and I’ve grown a like minded community full of amazing women who are all here to help and support each other.

The Stork and I Membership is a community for those of us looking to thrive as we progress through this amazing journey of solo parenthood.
