Using Egg Donation In Kansas City To Build & Grow Your Family: Why do clinics require me to meet with a mental health professional?Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | February 18, 2015
If your clinic requires you to meet with a mental health professional before moving forward with using an egg donor, or sperm donor, you may feel angry and defensive. This reaction is common and normal as the assumption by most intended parents are that they are going to be “assessed” or “evaluated” to determine if they are fit to be parents.
This is NOT the reason for the required meeting. Unfortunately that is not typically explained by the clinic’s staff simply because they may not have the time or information to accurately explain the purpose and intent of the required meeting.
The purpose of the meeting is to help you, educate you, and advocate for your unborn child. The intent is to prevent psychological harm or distress to your current and future family.
