Building a family using any Third Party help, surrogacy, egg donation, embryo donation, or sperm donation is a huge psychological step. At times someone could be giving up his or her genetic link to the baby or the Intended Parent is having to rely on a stranger to carry the child. All of these issues call for the need of a psychologist's input. Some clinics require at least one visit with a psychologist and all highly recommend on going visits during the process. All donors and surrogates need to be psychologically evaluated before assisting others with their third party plans. The emotional toll that Third Party Family Building can take may effect all relationships involved in this team effort!
