Telling our donor conception story – the impact of society and relationships
Monday 6th December 2021 – 8pm (GMT)
In this webinar, I was joined by Senior Sociology Lecturer and Researcher, Petra Nordqvist, to talk about her research into reproductive storytelling, particularly in relation to donor conception. She shared more about the shift to openness within donor conception, exploring what barriers may have been put in the way through society’s expectations and narratives. We focused on parents as storytellers, linking into wider family relationships and roles as well as talking about navigating conversations with children and wider family too, including having multiple storytellers around us.
