Donor Parent Support Group

Are you considering using an egg or sperm donor to help you get pregnant?
Are you already pregnant with a help of a donor ?
Did you become a parent through egg or sperm donation ?

If you find yourself in one of the 3 above scenarios, we can help…

Using an egg or sperm donation can greatly enhance your chances of conceiving yet it can create a flood of confused feelings in the process.

While you may be excited about the opportunity to conceive, you may also feel uncertain about not having a genetic connection with your child. You may also be worried about the implications this will have/or is having on your child.

Or perhaps you may already have a child who has been conceived through a donor and be worried about what to tell him or her about his/her genetic origins.

You and your partner may also may have a difference of opinion on whether to use a donor to conceive, which method to choose or how to tell your child.

Join us our donor parent support group and discover:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of using a donor
  • Pros and cons of known versus anonymous donor
  • How to decide if donor conception is right for you
  • How to chose a donor
  • The potential implications of egg or sperm donation on your child
  • Learn from others who are also considering using a donor or are already pregnant and gather support

Sponsored by the Fertility Specialists of Houston.
The group is FREE of charge and open to anyone who is considering or has gotten pregnant using a donor. Just give us a call to register.
