The London Women’s Clinic has counselling available for all patients and donors; counselling for support is available before, during and following any treatment or donation.
Implications counselling is available to explore your treatment plans, your wider family and any child conceived following treatment or donation. It is also available to ensure you are comfortable with all your consent forms, especially around legal parenthood.
You can contact your nursing team to receive a recommended list of counsellors for you to arrange to see.
