Five Myths About Donor Conception

I didn't grow up dreaming of using a donor to have my children. 

After our second failed IVF cycle, my doctor brought up the idea of using a donor and I was a hard no. I would NEVER use someone else’s genetics to create a child. But... after lots of research, soul searching and facing my fears... we decided to take the leap and we now have two beautiful donor conceived girls.

If you're wondering whether a donor conceived child is right for your family, or even just want to know more about how it all works, this training is for you.

Together, I'll walk you through my story, what the process looks like, and five myths about donor conception that everyone needs to know before taking the next steps.

Hi! I'm Meta Getman

I am a donor conception coach and mom to donor conceived twin girls who went through 4 IUIs, 3 fresh IVF cycles with my own eggs, and one donor egg cycle before getting my big fat positive. Now I help family focused, responsible, and thoughtful women and couples who have found themselves facing a journey to parenthood they never imagined: using donor eggs, donor sperm, or donor embryo. I have been featured in multiple podcasts, spoken at the RESOLVE Midwest Family Building Summit and co-founded a community of families who used a donor to have their children.
