The modern definition of co-parenting is a process where two people work together to raise a child without a physical or sexual relationship in the conventional or evolutionary sense.
Or where divorced parents work to bring up their kids even though they are divorced or separated and no longer live together. An example of co-parenting is when a divorced mother and father share legal and physical custody of their child.
AI = Artificial Insemination (Pot + Syringe outside of clinic e.g. in Recipient's house or hotel)
AI+ = AI with recipient co-operation (Donation obtained with recipient present and giving assistance in the room and this could be anything to stimulate the donor e.g. parading, mutual touching, a helping hand, oral, anything other than intercourse. The recipient then inseminates the donation as per AI
PI = Partial Insemination (Donor masturbates and just before coming will ejaculate into the Recipient - i.e. intercourse strictly for procreation not recreation.)
NI = Natural Insemination (Unprotected Sex)
NI+ = Oral sex followed by Natural Insemination (Unprotected Sex)
We must not try to corrupt a million years of human evolution. A mother and a father is best if possible.
Non-traditional families are becoming more popular around the world. Even so, it's not always easy to work out how to handle the challenges unconventional family life can bring.

Coparenting refers to a parenting situation where two or more adults work together to raise a child even though they are not necessarily the biological parents, living together or in a romantic relationship. The term 'post-separation coparent' is used to describe a situation where two parents work together to raise a child even though they are divorced or separated . Through this process, the parents seek to maintain equal or some shared responsibility to benefit the child's upbringing.

This has led some women to use unlicensed donors - but are they putting their health at risk? Simon Watson, 41, has been an unlicensed sperm donor for 16 years, donating once a week.
