Want to have a baby alone, how to proceed?
You just have to go on some forums to have a brightening statement: many women have not had the chance to meet their prince charming and yet have a great desire of having kids. Sometimes, this is because their partner already has children and does not want any more. This is why they have decided to put their fears aside (family, friends or potential partner reaction) and have a baby alone.
Sperm donation, not for everyone!
Not everybody has an extraordinary friend who will accept being the father without legally recognizing the child or getting involved in the raising process. So they quickly turn to sperm donation and medically-assisted reproduction. However, in France, only heterosexual couples whose infertility can be medically diagnosed are allowed to have recourse to the latter. Therefore, single women cannot have access to sperm donation.
Co-parenting, why not?
Co-parenting is recognizing that a child has two natural parents who both share responsibility for raising them. In this case, women willing to have a child alone have to find a sperm donor to help them, with or without intercourse. This sperm donor will not be involved in the child’s life unless the mother wants it. With over 45.000 registered persons on Co-parents.net, Dating website to become parents, future mothers can meet a donor to make their desire of having a child come true.
