Key Takeaways

  • Sperm banks have a rolodex of men you can choose from just like a dating site.
  • The exhaustion is real when you are a single parent because there is no one to tap-out to.
  • Building a village is important because you teach your child to be in relationship with other people.
  • There are tons of support groups for choice motherhood.
  • Research all doctors and find the one right for YOU.
  • Financially, it’s a big hit.
 

Actionable Solution

 How to Start the Choice Motherhood Path

STEP ONE: Research.

  • Research all the doctors and make sure they will fit into your personality.
 
STEP TWO: Track Your Cycle.
  • Track your cycle for at least 3 months to have a baseline to where to jump off from when you find your medical team. 
 
STEP THREE: Be Financially Prepared.
  • Kids are no joke expensive even BEFORE they’re born. Make sure you have a financial plan in place to know how you will navigate this journey.
 

STEP FOUR: Build Your Village.

  • Join a support group of women who are on the same journey so you can connect whenever you need some extra support.
