Today’s bonus episode guest is Dr. Maria Rothenburger, a psychotherapist who specializes in infertility. If you haven’t already listened to it, she shared her personal infertility story in Episode 18.

Dr. Rothenburger and Heather discuss how to tell your child (and other people) how they came into your life:

  • What should parents take into consideration when it comes to whether or not they tell their child about how they were conceived or came into their life?
  • If the parents decide to tell their child, what might the conversation look like for each of these scenarios:
    • IUI
    • IVF
    • Sperm and/or egg donor
    • Surrogacy/gestational carrier
    • Adoption/foster
  • When it comes to other people in your life, ranging from complete strangers to close members of your community, how can parents decide what and how much to tell them? What might the conversation look like for each of these scenarios:
    • IUI
    • IVF
    • Sperm and/or egg donor
    • Surrogacy/gestational carrier
    • Adoption/foster
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add?
