The next Routes to Parenthood show is on 13th of September 2015, and our founder and Editor, Hannah Latham will be talking about her 8-year journey to have children with her wife.

“As a lesbian couple we found it challenging to find a route to parenthood that worked for us and we tried and failed at many. There was a lack of consistent representation for us out there that would have been really reassuring when we were struggling.”

If you are part of the LGBTQ community and planning or trying for a baby, you'll get great advice and support at a Routes to Parenthood event. Also a great opportunity to connect with others going through the same thing!
