Pride Angel Journey - A Little Bump

October 1, 2014 21:01 by PrideAngelAdmin
pregnant Six weeks, seven weeks, eight weeks...we waited for the nausea to become a crippling misery of sickness...nine weeks, ten weeks, eleven weeks...still just a vague queasiness...twelve weeks, thirteen weeks, fourteen weeks and we finally accepted with relief (and a little envy on my part) that not all pregnancies involve eleven weeks of retching, vomiting and despair. After the initial bleeding scare, Sally's pregnancy was to be a low maintenance one, and with a eight-month-old baby Luna to look after, this was no bad thing. Fifteen weeks, sixteen weeks, seventeen weeks...

Luna though of course, being a baby, was on the high maintenance end of the scale, and required every bit of attention that two mummies could provide. She had developed a strong attraction to all objects small and swallow-hazardy, an uncanny ability to smear yoghurt into into everything within a two-metre radius of the dining table, and a deep love of "milky" - such that I spent hours and hours and hours trapped under a sleepy, sucky bundle of now rather big baby.

So Sally might have had an easy time of it, but lost amidst the nappies and lullabies and bootees and board books, she missed out a bit - on the tummy rubs and pampering and excitement of a first pregnancy. And perhaps I - not having had chance to get to know the little bump so well - missed out a bit too. Eighteen weeks, nineteen weeks, twenty weeks...and that little bump that was really starting to show...

Manchester Pride Expo Saturday 23rd - Monday 25th August.

The Expo is one of the community's favourite places to be during the Big Weekend! Find out about joining a sports group, getting advice about health and wellbeing or enter some competitions with our partners.

There are over 40 stalls representing LGBT organisations and supporters right in the heart of the site.

Visit Pride Angel at the Expo

Thinking about becoming a parent? Looking for a donor or co-parent? Or want to help others by donating sperm or eggs? Come along and talk to Pride Angel, at the Manchester Expo, where they will be happy to talk through your options.

Pride Angel is a leading connection website and fertility portal, bringing together donors and recipients throughout UK and worldwide. Members can register for free, create their own personal profile and contact users through our internal messaging system.

We have over 35,000 members registered , to include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual.

Members are able to search donors, co-parents or recipients by criteria such as hair colour, eye colour, sexuality, the amount of contact if any they wish to have with a child, and whether they wish to be a legal parent or not legally responsible.

Fortunately the law has improved within recent years to make legal parenthood much clearer, meaning that a donor can donate to a married or lesbian couple without the worry of being legally or financially responsible. So why not give the gift of life and make someone’s dream of a family become a reality.

Creating families with Pride.

Another successful year at the Alternative Parenting Show

Pride Angel Another successful year at the Alternative Parenting Show 2012.

Pride Angel had hundreds of visitors to our stand on Saturday. It was fantastic to be able to get the message out to many more single women and lesbian couples who were considering their options of choosing a known donor or thinking about co-parenting. There were also many single men and gay couples who were seriously considering co-parenting as an option which they previously had not considered would be a feasible option of becoming a parent. For those considering surrogacy many wished to find a known egg donor through Pride Angel, so that they could pass on more information to their child about their genetic origins. We really enjoyed being able to meet people face-to-face at our stand to be able to discuss the different parenting options available and how Pride Angel can help many people achieve their family.

Many people at the show asked questions about the following options:

• Single men and women wanting to co-parent
• Gay couples wanting to co-parent and be hands on fathers
• Gay couples wishing to find an egg donor for a surrogacy arrangement
• Lesbian couples wanting to choose a known donor who could be part of their child’s life
• Women wishing to donate eggs and become an aunty to the child
• Women looking for advice on how to conceive using home insemination
• Taking a known donor to a fertility clinic, what is the process
• What kind of involvement does a known donor really have
• How does a donor child feel about their donor father
• What health screening tests are required when undertaking insemination at home
• What is the legal position when using a known donor or co-parenting

Erika co-founder of Pride Angel said ‘It was lovely to get so much positive feedback from people about Pride Angel’ ‘We would love to hear far more feedback from our users to see how they get on along their journey and of course it’s lovely to hear all the success stories’

Pride Angel at Brighton Pride Saturday 1st September 2012

August 31, 2012 20:15 by PrideAngelAdmin
Tens of thousands of visitors are expected in Brighton and Hove for the city's 20th Pride festival, the first to be run by business leaders.

Saturday's parade and ticketed festival in Preston Park is being run by a community interest company appointed by the city council in March. The event was free until 2010 but dogged by money problems and complaints about overcrowding and litter.

Alexandra Burke and Fatboy Slim will headline the festival in the park.'Rebuild bridges' Drag entertainer Stephen Richards, who performs as Lola Lasagne, said this year's Brighton and Hove Pride was going back to its roots. "Pride is a celebration of everything we have here," he said.

"Over the last couple of years there has been a disconnection from the community and now, with a new organisation at the helm, they have tried to rebuild those bridges to include the entire community - not just businesses but voluntary sectors as well. "The most important thing they did was to promise that £1 from every ticket sold would go to charity and so far over £15,000 has been handed over which is more money than has been given in about 10 years." 'Great showcase'

The festival is usually held in August but has been delayed this year to avoid a clash with the London Olympics. The parade, based on the theme the United Colours of Pride, starts at 11:00 BST from Madeira Drive and takes in King's Road, West Street and North Street before travelling up the A23 to Preston Park. St James's Street in the city centre will be closed from 18:00 BST for the Gay Village Party.

"Pride is a great showcase for the city and one of the biggest events in the calendar," said Sussex Police Chief Supt Graham Bartlett. "It will be business as usual in the he city centre, although we do expect some temporary disruption to traffic." Police have warned that anyone holding unlicensed events, including on the beach, could face prosecution.
