Why do I need a third-party reproduction counselling session?

  • Most countries have third-party reproduction guidelines for medical staff and for counsellors.  In Canada, these guidelines are set by Health Canada and by professional associations (Canadian Fertility & Andrology Society (CFAS) that specialize in reproduction and fertility.
  • In your session, specific topics are discussed prior to donation or surrogacy at a clinic. Topics include, but are not limited to: purpose, process, support, donation: unknown/known, outcome, loss, guardianship, coping: mental health history, fears, concerns, worries etc. I will provide you with information, support, and strategies to help you and the future child on this journey. It is important to note these are not therapy sessions, more psychoeducational/consultation sessions.
  • A brief report is required to be sent to your fertility clinic, which confirms you have discussed the recommended topics.

Who attends the third-party reproduction counselling session?

  • Whether you are a donor, a surrogate, or an intended parent (recipient), Canadian policies require that your legal partner attends this appointment with you. *There may be an additional joint session with all parties
  • Legal partners are defined by Health Canada as someone living with you in a marriage-like relationship (e.g., common-law, married) for at least one year.
  • Even if your relationship does not fit our government’s definition, it can be helpful to include partners in this process. This helps to ensure that everyone understands what is expected, and is especially important if you will have contact with the resulting child/other party in the future.

Why is there a report?

  • If you consent, after your session, a report will be sent to the fertility clinic of your choice.
  • The report confirms that you have discussed the required topics in your counselling session.
  • If participating in a known/directed donation or surrogacy where you know the other party, the report is specific to that arrangement. It is not transferable to other arrangements with other people.
  • The report is valid until/unless circumstances alter your arrangement significantly. For example, an updated session and report is required when any of the following changes occur: health or mental health status, legal partner, source of gametes (unknown/agency to known/directed), other party, or expectations (in known arrangements), etc. In addition, your clinic may have a time limit on reports.

The cold plunge water is tested for cleanliness after each usage. The filter system is constantly cycling, refreshing the entire volume of water every 3 minutes.

Should I do anything before or after my hot-cold session?

  • Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your hot-cold session.
  • Avoid alcohol before and after your session.
  • If you fill or have a fever, we recommend to wait to use the therapy to wait to use the therapy until you feel better.
