This is an interactive, virtual group to discuss issues and topics that come up that might be specific to donor conception. We will work on formatting a story and discuss ways to integrate this at home. The group will be structured with educational information, such as, the cognitive development of donor-conceived children and what they can understand at different ages/stages; what we know about the impact of disclosure on the child and family; talking to family and friends; donor-linked peer considerations; and creating a “family origin story”. There will also be opportunity to share personal stories and experiences and connect with other parents.

  • Session 1: Parenthood and the other side of infertility
  • Session 2-3: Attachment and bonding, relationships, developmental understanding
  • Session 4-6: Constructing the story and what to share

To Register: Please fill out form and email Dr. Laura Covington with completed form.
