Going it Alone: A Guide for Solo Mums in the UK
by Emily Engel


“Going it Alone is a very thorough, practical, and readable guide to being a solo mom in the UK. It is packed with information based on both Engel’s own personal experience and her long-time work with other solo moms. She covers almost every possible aspect of choosing to be a single mom in a thoughtful and sound fashion. It will both educate you and make you think, which makes it a must-read if you’re thinking about becoming or are a solo mom, or just want to learn more about the subject.”

Jane Mattes, LCSW
Founder and Director: Single Mothers by Choice (SMC)

“This is a wonderful, comprehensive and well-written resource for anyone considering solo motherhood as well as solo mums with children. Essential reading.“

Nina Barnsley,
Director of the

Donor Conception Network

“If, like me, you’ve had enough of society telling you that you can have it all, yet not producing the men to go with it, then this is the book for you.  

Taking you step-by-step through the facts, stats and steps of becoming a solo mum by choice, this book puts to bed all the concerns around donor conception and helps you make the right choice for YOU!   

Peppered with real life experiences that even your gran can relate to. Plus some great techniques for how to deal with the nosey parents at the school gates. If you’re thinking of going it alone, stop thinking and start reading!”
