The Donor Conception Network can help you answer your questions and concerns, such as:

  • How do children feel about being donor conceived?
  • Will I bond with a child that is not genetically connected to me?
  • How can I go about exploring whether 'telling' is right for our family?
  • When should I start telling my child about his or her origins and how do I go about it?
  • Do I need to 'tell' other people outside our family?
