What is the role of the mental health professional (reproductive psychologist) in this process?
It is essential that all parties involved have a consultation with our reproductive psychologist. He will evaluate the donor and intended parents regarding the suitability for donor egg in vitro fertilization. Our reproductive psychologist at VFC is Dr.Eric Ochs, who can be contacted directly at 250 516 5414. It is required by Health Canada for both the egg donor and the Intended Parents to have a consultation with a reproductive psychologist before proceeding.
