The decision to use assisted or third-party reproduction can involve a lot of thought. Is IVF right for you? Do you have concerns regarding this process?
We can help you explore what assisted reproduction is and what it means to you and to your future child. We can also help you decide if this path is right for you.
If you are using third party reproduction, we can help individuals and couples think about how to communicate with their family members (including the child conceived via donor sperm), anticipate feelings that donor-conceived children might have, and determine what level of open contact they may want to have with their donor. As our counselors have many years of experience with open adoption, we bring to the table these skills in discussing and navigating open relationships with a non-biological parent.
We also can provide required counseling and documentation if your clinic is requiring a counseling session prior to initiation of third-party reproduction.
