Solo mums and donor conception

I have been meeting more and more women deciding to have children on their own, using either IUI or IVF and accessing altruistically donated semen (generally through a clinic or sperm bank).  This is a reasonably straightforward process (at least in Queensland, where I live and work) from a medical perspective, but solo parenting undoubtably presents some complex challenges from a social, legal and parenting perspective.

I frequently recommend the Donor Conception Network website as a resource to families embarking on third party reproduction, and they have a specific section devoted to solo mums which I can strongly recommend. You can check it out here https://www.dcnetwork.org/solo-mums
