Event Details

It's all about openness, honesty and how, when and why tell.


The Time to tell seminar provides tips on how, when and what to say to children, friends and family so that parents feel more confident about their story, and children can understand the unique way in which they came into this world.

Speakers include counsellors, parents from different families, donors and donor-conceived young people. You will gain insight and advice on all aspects of talking to children about becoming a family with the help of donated eggs, sperm embryos or a surrogate.

Potential parents, parents, friends, family, donors and professionals are all welcome.
