What is modern family building? It’s creating your family in an unconventional way - through adoption, egg or sperm donation, embryo donation, surrogacy, or a combination of these. We live in a time where if we can’t have a child the traditional way, we have the option to decide how we want to complete our family. Let’s talk through the ins and outs of modern family building, what it is and how it works, and debunk some of the myths along the way.  Show notes:

In this episode:

  • What is “normal” and who gets to decide your normal?
  • Explore family building alternatives including egg or sperm donation, embryo donation, and surrogacy, and who would need to consider these methods of starting a family.
  • Modern family building is going to become the norm, between infertility rates rising at a substantial rate, the legalization of same-sex marriage, and the increase in single-parenthood-by-choice.
  • Debunk the stigmas and myths surrounding modern family building, including whether or not surrogacy is ethical.
  • It’s up to you how you decide to build your family. You are in charge of your life and your journey to parenthood. Own it and make the decisions that best fit YOU!
