The couple, from Clayton, Stoke, are currently enjoying their maternity leaves with their two little bundles of joy, reports the Stoke Sentinel .
Palliative care worker Alison, aged 31, said: “We have always wanted children and last year we felt it was the right time.
“A lot of people have donors but I’ve never known it where both women in a couple have been pregnant at the same time.”
The couple, who have been together for four years and engaged for two, started their journey by finding a sperm donor on the websiteafter paying a £10 registration fee. They had already ruled out IVF as too expensive.
Alison added: “You can just go on a website and pick your sperm donor. We found one straight away and then about three to four months before we met him in person and went through the process.
“We chose him because of his background. He is a university teacher so he is very clever. Looks as well were very important. He sprang out at us.
“He would come to the house, do his thing and then go straight away. After that we used artificial insemination.
“Because they have the same father, the babies are blood-related to each other.”
Alison and Catherine spent the next eight months experiencing the highs and lows of pregnancy together, including going to each other’s scans and experiencing the same cravings.
The “do his thing part” is still not fully explained but we shall write a follow up story to explain it all.
