Fertility Counselling

Life Fertility Clinic recommends that all patients receiving fertility treatment take advantage of the counselling service we offer.

Our professional counsellors are aware that infertility presents many challenges to our patients including one’s self perception and one’s relationships with others.   Everyone responds differently to the circumstances that present themselves in their lives.  A caring supportive network of family, friends and the team at Life Fertility Clinic along with our professional counsellors  is of enormous benefit to our patients as they manage their fertility issues.

One counselling session per IVF cycle is included for all patients undertaking fertility treatment at no cost to the patient.  However, the counselling session is not compulsory.

For patients undergoing sperm, egg and embryo donation counselling is compulsory  This counselling will include the patient,  partners and the recipient.  For all  donor fertility treatments a fee is applied and the recipient will be responsible for the payment of this fee.
