As part of my Taking Control series I have interviewed the very lovely Becky Kearns, AKA Defining Mum, about her personal journey to becoming a mum through donor conception.

Becky started sharing her story on instagram to raise awareness of the challenges of infertility and donor conception, and to offer support. She recently launched her new platform, Paths to Parenthub which offers support and connection for donor conception.

In this interview Becky talks very honestly about her journey, the decisions her and her hubby Matt had to make, and the emotions they felt through the process.

We talk about what things you can do to take control of your experience of using a donor to create your family - making the decision, during the process and if you create your family through a donor.

We cover so many things in this interview, and there are so many things that are helpful to consider if you are advised that you may need a donor, so please have a watch.

The taking control series has been developed to give you lots of ways you can start to feel more in control, whatever your journey looks like.
