Couples Counseling Session
Couples Counseling Session
Fee: $175.00

Couples that are not able to conceive or deliver may seek the assistance of a third member using reproductive technology. Whether couples use an anonymous or known donor, most physicians require them to meet with an infertility counselor before treatment. It's good to talk about your concerns with a professional before moving forward.

Egg donor pregnancy
Intended Parents Session + Report
Fee: $190.00

Intended parents are encouraged by their doctor to attend counseling prior to an egg or sperm donation procedure or before using a gestational carrier. Counseling for IPs includes the exploration of complex social issues and feelings that may be hard to voice. This counseling session is not intended to be a test you must pass prior to treatment but rather a place to discuss your concerns.

IP counseling is approx 1 hour 10 min and covers the topics recommended by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, (ASRM). A brief report for your physician or clinic is included in the fee.

ASRM Topics for Intended Parent Egg Donation Counseling

  • What are our best options considering our finances?
  • How do we choose a donor?
  • What role will the donor have in our lives, if any?
  • Should we tell our child about his/her donor conception?
  • Will I feel like my child isn't really mine?
  • I am upset about not having a bio child. Is that ok?
  • Should we tell our family members about using a donor?
  • How do we deal with questions from others?
  • What if this treatment doesn't work?
  • Will my child be upset with me for choosing to conceive this way?
