    Did Nikita Find Her Donor?

    Did Nikita Find Her Donor?

    Nikita was my very first guest on the podcast. She came on to spread the word about her search to find her sperm donor in 30 days. Nikita was raised by a single mom who chose sperm donation to have her. The donation was out of the ordinary: a 50-year-old anonymous man donated sperm in the UK before 1997. 


    Nikita shares what she has discovered in the last 16 months. Her search led to an unexpected surprise!


     


     


     


     


     


     


    Listen to see if you can help her find the man that helped conceive her. If you have any information to share, email nikitatrue1997@gmail.com.

Love this podcast

I love this podcast so much. It came at the perfect time for us, just as we were considering egg donor IVF as our route to parenthood. I really enjoy the variety of guests, from those experiencing infertility to those that have had success as well as experts and those who are donor conceived. Jana is an excellent host - sensitive to her guests and knowledgable about the subject area.
