Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to Olivia’s View.

This blog is my own personal view of donor conception:  the issues, the questions, my reflections on family life, plus comments on media coverage and events: I’m one of the co-founders of DC Network and mother to two sons and a daughter, now adults, conceived both with and without donor help. The views expressed here  are not necessarily those of DC Network.

Meet my family:  Husband Walter, who was the first Chair of DC Network, only stepping down in April 2017. He also used to be on the board of the HFEA;   eldest son Peter from my first marriage, married to Emily and parents to our first lovely grand-daughter; younger son Will married to Rebecca and now in 2018 parents to our new grand-daughter, and daughter ‘Zannah, a talented therapist and healer.  Then there’s Milo, a seriously noisy and annoying but ultimately lovable Siamese cat.

  1. Great to read your blog and your views on DC matters. We are not that different in the end…

    Hi Olivia- I’m Alana S., founded AnonymousUs.org
    I met JoEllen Marsh and she said that I should really meet you and your husband while I’m visiting here in the UK.
    I’m here for 10 more days! Would love to come visit you and Walter.

    Hi Olivia,
    My name is Justine. With a French journalist, we are working on a photojournalistic project concerning children conceived by sperm donation, trying to find some of their siblings. I’ve read your blog with a lot of interest. I was wondering if you could help me finding some voluntary persons, or answer a few questions.
    Let me know if you need some more details, that I will be happy to provide.
    Thank you.
