Information For Journalists / Researchers

If you need case studies for urgent news stories, email your request to

Please give us as much information as possible, including:

  • type of media

  • whether an alias is allowed.

If you need background information on donation issues not covered on this site please email

Request for longer lead-time publications shall also be published on this page and we would need a deadline as well.

Information for anyone involved in donation

We are always looking for people with personal experience of donation, whether you are a donor-conceived person, a parent or intended parent of a donor-conceived person, an intended donor or donor.

If you are willing to talk to the media email Anita on and she will contact you for more details. Not all case studies need to be with pictures and a known identity so if you’re willing to share your story in any way, just let us know.


Hello, my name is Jenna and I’m a journalist writing a report for a women’s magazine on donor conception.

I’m looking to speak to a mum who used donor sperm to conceive, and has a young child or children aged under eight.

It doesn’t matter what kind of relationship the mum is in, or if she is single, but we will need to use her name and picture, and ideally picture her with her child(ren).

I’d like to talk to her about how she plans to talk to her child(ren) as they grow up about how they were conceived and their genetic father, and I’m happy to read her quotes back to her after I’ve written the piece up.

Ideally we need someone who hasn’t done many interviews with women’s magazines or national press before.

Please contact me on if you think you can help.

Many thanks,


In The Media
