Upcoming Webinars

Virtual support has become a way of life in 2020. The beauty of virtual is that it allows you to interact within the privacy of your own home, watch with whomever you wish and access from anywhere in the world! Having previously partnered with Altrui and Apricity to produce hugely successful events, Paths To Parenthub provides monthly webinars focusing on emotional support throughout the entire donor conception journey.

All webinars and live chats are included within the membership, with the opportunity for members to submit questions prior to each event creating content and discussion which has been shaped by you. You can even have the webinars placed directly into your calendar so that you never have to miss a live event! As a member, you will also have access to additional bonus webinars and live chats throughout the year, with many incredible expert speakers already lined up.

If you’d prefer to pay as you go to watch webinars that most appeal to you and your circumstances you can simply click on the webinar you’d like to register for and once completed you will receive a private webinar link.
