Libby King is the chair and founder of BourneThisWay.
“As the founder & chair of this new community group I am extremely passionate about driving this forward and developing it.
I am a gay woman, I gave birth to my son in August last year and I am doing this solo. I know how hard it can be to find the correct information on how to start the process of having a child. I came across a lot of in-direct and direct discrimination from some of the health care services where it was often assumed I was heterosexual. It was a very emotional and lonely process with little to no information or support about what the next steps were going forward to starting a family.
My experiences have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and understanding as well as the drive to develop this support group and I hope I can use this to help others on their journey.
The committee consists of a diverse range of people, all of whom bring their own unique experiences and journeys to the group. We are all invested in working together and listening to our members to enable us to provide growth and support for all.
