Getting Started - thinking about donor conception?

Details

If youโ€™re thinking about using donor conception, we know youโ€™ll have lots of questions. This event is the perfect place to start getting answers. Join us and hear from:

  • An embryologist from a UK clinic giving essential medical info
  • A donor conceived adult talking about their experiences of growing up DC
  • Parents by donor conception talking through their decision-making and life as a parent

This event is suitable for everyone at the start of their donor conception journey, for same-sex and heterosexual couples and for those planning to become single parents. It's a friendly, inclusive chance to meet others at a similar stage in a relaxed environment at this in-person event.

The ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake but not lunch; this helps us keep costs down and means you can choose and order whatever you'd like separately. You can find the pub's menu here: https://www.thehercules.co.uk/food/menus. You are also free to take lunch outside of course but we hope you'll stay with us during the break as it will be a great opportunity to chat with other attendees and our DCN team.
