Have You Been Referred By Your Fertility Clinic?
If you are planning to grow your family by being the recipient of donor eggs, donor embryo or donor sperm, our meeting together is an opportunity to explore your journey through infertility. We will review your emotional process of trailblazing the often unexpected path of assisted reproductive technology. We will discuss any fears or anxieties that are often related to alternative family building, as well as coping and resiliency strategies, as you move forward through this process. We will review evidence based research regarding how and when we share your story with others, including your offspring. Resources will be offered, as well as outside referrals, if appropriate.
If you are giving the amazing gift of donating your eggs, we will review your background, emotional and mental health history, fertility history and motivation to participate in egg donation. First and foremost, we will make sure that you have an understanding of the process you are generously preparing for, as well as the emotional and logistical supports in place to help your process to be as positive of an experience for you as possible.
