Pride Angel have been contacted by female filmmaker with an award-winning television production company called ‘Below The Radar’. They are developing a documentary for Channel 4 in the UK on the subject of co-parenting and sperm donation. They wish to get in contact with UK based donors and recipients who are choosing to start their own families through direct contact with each other.
In a recently published case a High Court Judge has declared a lesbian non birth mother as ‘not a parent’ due to errors at a fertility clinic. The case involved a lesbian couple who had been in a relationship for 13 years and had started a family together at a licensed fertility clinic, with the birth mother conceiving in 2009. The couple had waited for the changes in the law which allow a non birth mother to become a second parent by signing the necessary consent forms, to come into force before conception.

Several months ago I consulted with a woman and her same-sex partner. I'll refer to them as "Sue" and "Sally." They had a 3-year-old son who was conceived using sperm donated directly to the couple by a close friend named "Stan." Donation and conception took place under friendly circumstances at the women's home. Stan did his part in the privacy of their bathroom, and they promptly used his sperm to create a baby. Voilà, the conception of "Baby X" was confirmed in a matter of weeks.
