Sperm donor children with single parents ‚well adjusted‘
This summary of research on child development after donor insemination was published by BioNews:
Donor-conceived children born to single women are equally well adjusted as those from two-parent donor-conceived families, according to a recent UK study examining the views of single mothers and children aged between four and nine years old.
‚At an age at which children begin to understand their family circumstances, they continue to function well,‘ said researcher Dr Sophie Zadehof the Centre for Family Research at the University of Cambridge.
The study, recently presented at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology annual meeting in Helsinki, Finland, compared 51 single-mother families with 52 heterosexual two-parent families with at least one donor-conceived child.
