I was born as a result of donor insemination or other assisted reproduction, what help is available?

posted in: FAQ | 0

Children born as a result of reproductive technologies may have similar feelings to adoptees including feelings of loss, powerlessness and anger. We can provide counselling and support. We can also assist parents with information on how best to tell children of their origins.
