Preparing for and adjusting to the birth of a child can be a challenging process. As the non-gestational parent, there are struggles unique to this positionality that are often experienced in addition to this transition.
Join us twice a month for a casual, peer-led space devoted to connection with other queer, non-gestational parents. Here, folks are invited to share the full spectrum of experience whether it be struggle, celebration, seeking guidance, or all of the above.
Here are some common questions/themes we might explore:
- Concern about parenting role
- Parenting within polyamorous dynamics
- Dealing with legalities around adoption in queer/poly parenting
- Navigating frustrations around comments regarding your relation to your child
- Fear of not feeling or being seen as a legitimate parent due to not having a biological connection or due to not being in a heterosexual dynamic
- Concern about connection to kiddo being less than or different due to lack of shared DNA
