Alternative Insemination groups

Alternative Insemination (AI) Peer Support Group

Join CWHC for an ongoing, drop-in, peer-led Alternative Insemination (AI) support group on the fourth Tuesday of each month! 

Not only an opportunity for those interested in AI to talk with people who have experienced the process firsthand, the AI Peer Support Group offers the chance for those currently doing inseminations to share with and support others who are going through the same process.

Come to CWHC's meeting room, at 1025 W. Sunnyside, and meet other families who have had (or are expecting!) children through donor insemination.

Register at any time, but at least five days before a meeting. For more information, contact the Alternative Insemination Program at 773-935-6126 x223 or via email.

Donations will be accepted at the group. No minimum required. Please note: You will be redirected to PayPal when you register for this workshop, however you are NOT required to submit a payment in order to register. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 30 minutes of registering, please email


Abortion Companion Training with CWHC and Mama Aicha

Everyone loves someone who had an abortion.

CWHC, in collaboration with Mama Aicha, is now offering training on how to support someone seeking abortion care. This three-hour workshop will focus on providing emotional and physical support before, during, and after abortion care. This workshop is an explicitly reproductive justice-framed session and is rooted in values of intersectional feminism.

In addition to addressing tips for post-abortion care and support, this workshop will focus on anatomy, medication abortions, in-clinic abortions, the history of abortion care, and abortion laws.

This training will have two parts:
-Part 1: 10am-1pm: Exploring Reproductive Justice, Abortion Care, and the Role of Abortion Companions
-Part 2: 2-5pm: Abortion Companion Techniques and Comfort Measures
-For this training, you can register for BOTH Part 1 and Part 2, for JUST Part 1, or for JUST Part 2!

Fee: we offer our workshops on a sliding scale, and no one is turned away based on ability to pay! Feel free to reach out with any questions!
-For BOTH Parts 1 and 2: sliding scale of $100-$40
-For JUST Part 1: sliding scale of $60-$25
-For JUST Part 2: sliding scale of $60-$25
