Wednesday 18th January 2023 – 8pm (GMT)
To celebrate the launch of our brand new LGBTQ+ space within Paths to Parenthub we hosted a free opportunity to hear from one of our amazing speakers, Consultant Perinatal Psychologist Julianne Boutaleb, as we discussed one of the biggest questions and fears… the concept behind the term ‘real’ when it comes to parenting after donor conception.
Whether you’re using a donor to conceive as part of an LGBTQ+ couple, heterosexual couple or as a solo parent, there will likely be questions raised about who is involved in making a baby, which can often be linked with terminology and perceptions around what is real. This is a common fear and question that can evoke insecurities, particularly for non-genetic parents. We explored the impact this can have and shared some tips on how you might deal with questions around this, both emotionally and practically.
It’s a great opportunity to listen to an open discussion on this little talked about topic, whilst finding out more about what Paths to Parenthub has to offer in terms of resources and support, in particular for our new space for LGBTQ+ people on their path to parenthood using donor conception.
This was a free event open to all. If you’d like to share the webinar with someone who isn’t a member of Paths to Parenthub, please use this link so that they can access the recording: https://members.definingmum.com/so-whos-the-real-mum-dad/
