Required Counseling When Using An Egg Donor To Build Your Family In Kansas City
Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | January 7, 2014
Depending on where you are on your journey to build your family using egg donation, you may or may not know that your clinic may require you to meet with a mental health professional before moving forward with treatment. Why?
The main reason that some clinics make it a requirement is that the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), which is a world-renowned professional organization in the field of reproductive medicine, recommends it. The ASRM publishes treatment guidelines for the field of reproductive medicine that are followed by fertility professionals all over the world. According to the ASRM guidelines, all persons who wish to use a third-party, or an anonymous party, for reproductive purposes, meet with a mental health professional to discuss all of the special circumstances and future implications.
Even if your clinic does not require it, Pathways To Parenthood recommends it for all future parents using an egg donor to build their family. Contact us today for more information about using egg donation to build your family.
