Make me a Mum!
I am raising money to try and make my motherhood dream come true.Auckland
If you have ever met me, you've heard how much I want to be a mum.
A few years ago, I began investigating having a baby on my own through a sperm donor - or becoming a Single Mother by Choice. I found a whole new world of women who shared my story, and I started to believe that my dream could possibly become a reality. Eighteen months ago, I joined the waiting list for a sperm donor - a process I was told could take up to four years.
Three weeks ago, I got a phone call to say I have reached the top of the list - whenever I'm ready, I can go and choose a donor.
This is where you come in. To have a cycle of intra-uterine insemination (IUI) with donor sperm costs $2300, and I will need 4-5 cycles to get pregnant.
I know life can be tough, and money is tight - but it would mean the world to me if you could help me on my journey to becoming a Mum.
Thank you x
Use of funds
The funds will be used for intrauterine insemination with donor sperm. Any additional funds will go towards (hopefully) baby supplies and maternity leave.

I need help. 20 February 2019
Thank you so much for your help so far. I've had three rounds of IUI now, with additional drugs to help my hormone levels.
Unfortunately, none of these have worked. I'm now looking at IVF as my next step, which comes with an $11k pricetag.
You are under no obligation to help me again - I know money is tight. But if you have even a few extra dollars, every little bit can help.
