Enabling and inspiring people facing the prospect of living life without children to to reconnect with their daily lives and rediscover a passion and purpose.
‘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.
