I’m Hayley, (she/her) I currently living in Wales with my wife of 11 years. We have two beautiful children via donor sperm IVF. My wife carried and we used her eggs. In a twist of fate, I’m also a donor conceived person myself. My parents used an anonymous (sperm) donor to have me as part of pioneering IVF treatment in the 1980s, however I didn’t find this out until much later in life. In 2019 I DNA tested myself and have located my biological father and 3 other donor siblings. It’s been something of a journey!
I spent most of my life working as a police officer, but have exchanged this role for the more chaotic life as a stay at home mum! I’ve recently started some educational and advocacy work around donor conception, and hope to raise awareness and help others on their parenting journeys. My IG account is @dcp_journey_2_rp where I have been documenting my journey and connecting with others in the donor conception community.
