— About —
My name is Renee Winston, soon to be a divorcee and I am childless due to circumstance. That circumstance is Endometriosis. As a woman in my early 50's...I AM complete! Even though I came to grips with infertility almost 20 years ago yet today, it still hurts. I am now a Certified Wellness Coach and I specialize in helping women who are childless due to circumstance to thrive and live a fulfilled life.
I found that many people are insensitive about the reasons that we don't have children. The hardest thing for woman is to realized that they will never be mothers and I am will be a great support and someone who will help them to not only accept their childless life, but also embrace it with joy!
I am very passionate to help women who are dealing with infertility issues and decided to remain childless yet support their bodies. Personally, I've NEVER done anything with IVF or took a shot to increase my chances of becoming pregnant (due to cost and because I believed I was born barren), so I FULLY understand the pain, the experience and the need for a safe place for expression, heal and thrive.
I remember when the doctor told me that I could not have children due to endometrosis, blocked fallopian tubes not in their correct position, chocolate cysts on my ovaries and fibroids within my uterus, I thought I was all alone being infertile ~ the only one dealing with it. So many sad days and nights of "why me?" I have so many stories and I know you and other women do as well.
At one point, I was thinking about adoption but I was soo screwed up in the head about it and suffering greatly from my period every month, I probably would of not been a good mom. Plus, I was very single (big believer that a child should have a Mom and Dad at home).
All I wanted was an ear and a space to cry without judgement. This was before the internet. Now that we have the internet, we can come together virtually and in person to share out stories because we are not alone in this. And my goal is to support women who are ready to live life to the fullest!
