If you’ve been recommended to explore gamete or embryo donation treatment, we understand this can be difficult to grasp at first. Deciding to embark on a journey with donated eggs, sperm or embryos requires careful consideration, and it’s important that you’re fully informed about the unique implications it carries for your family.
This guide has been created by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists in both medical and psychological aspects of donation, with decades of experience helping couples understand donation as a form of family creation. It is designed to help you come to terms with the more difficult and confusing emotions that can arise when considering donation, as well as equip you with useful tools to prepare for the future, such as talking to your child about your decision.
