We’re a lesbian couple in our early thirties who are hoping to start a family in the very near future. We’ve been together for nine years, one of us a scientist, the other a classical musician retraining as a librarian. We’ve been thinking seriously about making babies for about two years now. We did have a donor lined up, we'd been in discussion for over a year and were going to start trying in January, but his situation has suddenly changed. The result is, we're all ready to go, have put in lots of thought and preparation, it's the right time in our lives ... and we really need some kind person to help us!
We’re now looking for someone who is willing to make an altruistic donation and not get too complicated about it, although occasional contact would be fine. As we are likely to have to move around a bit for work, co-parenting would be difficult, but we don’t want a totally anonymous donor as we want to be able to answer any questions our children may have about their biological father. There would be no legal or financial obligation on your part, however we would ask as a minimum that you stay in touch with us.
We’d prefer a private arrangement at this stage rather than going through a clinic, as there’s no reason on our part to believe there are fertility issues! We’d ask you to agree to some health checks first, for which we would cover the costs.
We like doing lots of things together and with our friends, like gardening, cooking, bicycle commuting, growing our own veggies, playing chamber music, singing silly songs, knitting, reading, having breakfast on the veranda, watching the baby currawongs… We’re a bit nerdy-geeky, but very health conscious, and we like lifting weights and have recently learnt how to jog.
If anyone thinks they might be able to help us, or could put us in touch with someone, please send us a message.
Elise and Nadia.

Just wanted to pop in and with you all the very best! The journey to parenthood takes many forms.
Can I ask if you will be self inseminating or going through IUI or similar? I am currently undergoing IVF in Bangkok and couldn't be happier with the treatment. They do IUI at the clinic and can also source donor sperm. PM me if you would like some info.
I'm sure you would have already considered this but I would suggest that you have a legal contract drawn up by an experienced lawyer. This will protect your future child from any potential custody disputes from the donor and/or their family, regulate contact and also give the donor peace of mind. There was a case in recent years where an a man donated to friends who then separated and the custodial parent sued, successfully, for child support from him.
