Telling and talking about donor conception
Talking about donor conception can feel daunting. Where and when to start? What words to use? What will the reaction be? How can I answer difficult questions? What about children of different ages and different developmental stages?
How can I build my confidence in our family story?
We offer workshops, books, peer-to-peer support and a wealth of experience. Have a look at the options below as a start and just get in touch if you have questions.
Telling and Talking workshops
Designed for those who already have children conceived this way and who want to explore different ways to talk to their young children about their origins.
At our national conferences (normally April and October) we offer a group for donor conceived children aged 8-12yrs, and non-donor conceived siblings in this age bracket. We also have a creative session called 'What Makes Me, Me?' that we currently run at our conferences and which is suitable for 8-15yr olds.
Connect with others
They say it takes a village to raise children. Well, sometimes it takes a village to help you even contemplate that journey. Everyone needs support and community at different stages of life.
Books and resources
We have a number of books and resources that can help you.
