This case provides an illustration of the importance of drawing relationality into healthcare. It will do so by exemplifying how a bioethics approach that merely protects the rights and interests of individuals is inapt as it comes to capturing the full picture of how decisions— in this case related to reproduction and reproductive medical treatment— are made within families. This case describes lesbian family initiators’ experiences of constructing and narrating their family story around the conception of their children.
