Becoming a Paths To Parenthub member offers you the opportunity to find support, connection and resources so that you no longer feel alone on this journey. We want to help you feel more positive and prepared about this path to parenthood, offering hope for what the future may hold.

“More than two years on since first creating Paths To Parenthub I am so proud of what it has become. What began as a vision and natural evolution from DefiningMum, has developed into a thriving community, alongside a wealth of insightful conversations and perspectives all designed to help you feel less alone and better prepared on this path to parenthood. I’ve always wanted to help fill the emotional support vacuum, something I believe is an essential step when embarking on fertility treatment using a donor.

This hub is everything I would have needed and wanted back when making the decision. Even now, as a parent to children conceived with the help of an egg donor I’m continually learning, accepting and growing as a parent, as I understand how best to support my children in the future.”

LGBTQ+ Paths to Parenthub

For many LGBTQ+ people, donor conception offers hope and optimism – it provides a route to parenthood that for many would otherwise not exist. However, here at Paths To Parenthub we also acknowledge that needing the help of a donor to build your family can be a confusing and challenging time too, a time filled with conflicting emotions and uncertainty. Furthermore, being part of the LGBTQ+ community can throw up some additional considerations on this route to becoming a parent.

In partnership with Hayley King our conversations and resources are becoming more tailored to the LGBTQ+ community and the specific questions and challenges that can be faced, plus we are growing our community to host specific spaces to build connections with others on a similar path, all within this safe, private platform.
