Welcome to the Donor Conception Network

We are a supportive network of more than 2,000 mainly UK based families with children conceived with donated sperm, eggs or embryos, those considering or undergoing donor conception procedures; and donor conceived people. If you or members of your family are affected by any of these issues, you have come to the right place! JOIN NOW

What's going on in the Network?

We have just finished updating and editing our ‘Going Abroad’ document. Lots of our members, as well as those visiting our website, may be thinking about or planning on going abroad for treatment, or already have children conceived at a non UK clinic. There are many good reasons why people choose a non-UK clinic and this document is intended to keep people well-informed and prepared. This document is essential reading.


We have a stand and will be speaking at the Fertility Show in London on 5th and 6th November. This is great event for people thinking about donor conception to find out more. If you attend, do make sure you come and say hello. https://www.fertilityshow.co.uk/

Lots of our local groups are meeting this autumn. Join us today to get full details.
