In her early thirties, Hayley discovered she was donor-conceived during a family argument.
Years on, she and her wife have their own donor-conceived children. On the TRB podcast today, Eloise speaks with Hayley about her experiences as a donor-conceived person and how these have shaped the way she and her wife raise their children.
Hayley shares her and her wife’s thoughts behind choosing a donor, tips for picking a sperm donor, advice on telling donor-conceived children their origin stories and where to find support about donor-conception.
Eloise and Hayley also discuss the minefield of language and terminology and share recommendations of personalised books about donor-conception.
