The Emotional Aspects of Having a Child Through Donor Egg in Kansas City
Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | September 26, 2013
There are many practical considerations involved in building your family when using donor eggs. Decisions such as which fertility clinic you will work with, how to find a donor egg agency you can trust, learning about treatment costs and how to pay for treatment. These are all very important and necessary points to consider and decisions to make.
Sometimes intended parents begin the process of answering these questions and trying to make decisions prematurely. There is an emotional process and stages that intended parents must go through to be fully prepared to embrace a child conceived through egg donation. Some people move through the stages quickly, others take a longer period of time. The process is very similar to the grieving process one goes through when there is a death of a loved one. Grieving is part of the emotional process for those that are considering using donor eggs to build their family too.
The important point is to not push yourself and accept that if the idea of using donor egg to build your family makes you angry or sad, you likely are not fully ready to consider the option.
