Recipient Counseling

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommends that individuals and couples pursuing assisted reproduction with donor gametes have (at least) one visit with a mental health professional with expertise in assisted reproductive technologies.  Appointments are available for recipient counseling sessions, and include a report sent in a timely fashion to the treating physician.  These counseling sessions include review of recipient's personal background, reason for choosing donor conception, and issues related to donor conception. 

 

Evaluation of Potential Donors and Surrogates

Following ASRM guidelines, potential donors and surrogates will be screened with an extensive interview and personality assessment.  A written report will be provided to the agency and treating physician in a timely fashion. 

Interviews and assessments via internet communication are available.
