About the Event

An opportunity to come together for the day in a safe, supportive space to share stories, make connections & ask questions – all incredibly important steps to help make important decisions & start ‘building your tribe’.  

We’ll be sharing a variety of experiences & perspectives, with an interactive panel featuring egg & sperm donor recipients, as well as someone who is donor conceived themselves. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions & hear inspirational positive realities – all important ways to start visualising how things might work out for you.  

Over a two course lunch, I’ll be encouraging something I feel so passionately about - the making of connections. My hope is for you to meet others in the same position, those who understand, who can cheer you on & be your support throughout. You never know, you might even meet future family friends for your donor conceived children to grow up knowing as part of their own ‘tribe’!  

Finally, we’ll be joined by Julianne Boutaleb, a Consultant Perinatal Psychologist & Founder of @parenthoodinmind (I will share more about Julianne soon!) Julianne & I will be facilitating a session to encourage you to explore some of your own fears and emotions that come hand-in-hand with using a donor. My hope is that it will validate your feelings, help you to understand them, & know that you’re not alone. I truly believe that by being more aware of our feelings now, we can start to work through them to best prepare ourselves for parenthood.  

As well as the emotional focus, there will be practical advice available – with clinic information about how a donor cycle works, again with the opportunity for you to ask questions.
