Abstract

This leaflet is for heterosexual couples who already have, or who are planning, children using donor eggs or sperm. It is based on many hours of research interviews, during which parents and grandparents of donor-conceived children told us about their experiences of family life. This leaflet is our way of sharing their stories with families in a similar situation.This leaflet is one of a series of four, written for parents and grandparents with donor-conceived children. They are based on research from the Relative Strangers project.
