  • The best thing I ever did was find this podcast

    When I was starting my adoption journey, I knew nothing and I didn’t really know how to begin. I came across the wonderful Creating a Family website and started listening to Dawn Davenport’s incredible podcasts. First of all, Dawn Davenport is a national treasure. She is also one of the best interviewers I’ve ever heard— and I work in non-fiction television! She patiently, lovingly asks every question you want the answers to and makes sure she gets all the information. She feels like she is gen... more

  • Thanks from a one week dad

    My spouse gave birth to little girl last week after a four-five year fertility journey, culminating with a successful IVF transfer.

  • Each case is very individual. It needs to be investigated and treated individually, depending on the situation. Medical examination of the body, analysis, screening, and only then does the conversation go about donation. Now donor materials are transported in the highest degree of safety, you can learn more about this here , in the end you don’t even have to worry about their quality.

  • Topics are great but overall falls flat

    I want to love this podcast because of the topics but I find there isn’t enough substance in most episodes. The 45-50 minute episodes usually cover helpful info in 10-15 minutes and the rest is repetitive fluff or not helpful. And the conversations are bland otherwise. Good for this program for providing those who need it some important information. I just need something more.
