Our Psychology Department aims to provide patients with the necessary support so they feel calm and optimistic to increase their probability of pregnancy.
We have a Psychology Unit to support our patients throughout all stages of their treatment.
The Psychology Unit provides the support necessary at every stage of the treatment; especially in those moments that may be more difficult, like waiting for the pregnancy test results.
You will receive all throughout the duration of your treatment, especially during the toughest stages like waiting for the pregnancy test or awaiting other results, which can cause anxiety.
Most people assume that they will have biological children and they dream of what their children will be like. Sometimes, however, the only option to have a family is by egg donation, which can cause insecurity and fear. With psychological support patients can talk about their fears and discuss this treatment option more in-depth, answering questions like: why do couples keep the treatment a secret from the child born from donor eggs? or why should I tell the child? and how should I tell him or her? When?
Sometimes, women considering to have a child without a partner may require the help of an expert throughout this journey. Especially if they feel they do not have the necessary support system, this may be the type of help the patient needs in order to be able to go through the treatment. Doubts about how to raise the child and how to educate her/him may also be discussed.
ROPA: how to evaluate the decision with one’s partner and discuss doubts about the genetic inheritance or whether or not to get pregnant. Most people expect heterosexual couples to have children, but in the case of homosexual couples the expectations are not the same. How can the couple tell their families they are expecting? What about the sexual orientation of the child?
