DONOR RECIPIENT CONSULTATIONS
The decision to use donor sperm or eggs to achieve the goal of parenthood can be a complex decision with many considerations. I offer consultations for prospective recipients of anonymous/unknown donor gametes that keep within the guidelines and recommendations of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
Consultations provide an opportunity for you to further explore your interest in using donor gametes and receive psychoeducation regarding different facets of the decision. Various topics will be covered during the consultation, including history of relationship and infertility, loss of genetic contribution to a potential child, recipient concerns regarding use of donor eggs/sperm, disclosure regarding the use of donor gametes, anonymity, other family building options, and resources.
Consultation appointments typically last 75-90 minutes.
