Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | January 14, 2014
There are many important decisions to make when using an egg donor to help build and grow your family. One that many couples wrestle with is whether to share their exciting plans with family and close friends. Most of the time, the journey to building your family through egg donation is a long, hard one, and your family and friends have some awareness of your struggles and losses.
Learning and deciding that there is a new option such as egg donation to build your family may lead to feeling, as is the case for many people, a natural inclination to share the news with loved ones. After all, they have been with you along the way. You may feel they have a right to know.
Before you share your news with anybody besides your partner, it is extremely important to talk with your spouse and consider a few other decisions before you make the decision to share with others. There are a few to make, but probably the most important one is when and how you might tell any children that are conceived through egg donation.
