I live in WA and my partner and I are looking into having a baby. We have a male friend that has said he donate sperm, but we're wondering if we should go through the clinic or do self insemination. Self insemination will be quicker and a lot cheeper and easier but is illegal in WA which will make it difficult for my partner to be the legal second parent. Where as if we go through a clinic my partner will be automatically the second parent on the birth certificate. I'd like some advice from people who have been through this decision, what did you choose and what was the outcome?
