Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation (Second Edition)


Product Description

Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation is a helpful, authoritative guide to negotiating the complex and emotive issues that arise for those considering whether or not to pursue egg donation, including gay couples. It presents information clearly and with compassion, exploring the practical, financial, logistical, social and ethical questions that commonly arise.

Taking readers through the decision making process, it focusses on questions they are likely to be asking themselves, including: "Are we candidates for egg donation?" "Will it work?" "How much does it cost?" "How do we find a donor?" "Should we ask a family member or work with a stranger?" "How do we talk about our decision with others?" "How will we tell our children?" Ethical questions related to egg donation are also examined: "Can a donor truly have informed consent?" "Is it ethically correct for donors to receive payment, and, if so, is the payment for time and effort' or for their eggs?",  and possibly the  most contentious -  "How old is too old?"  This fully updated second edition also includes recent developments in the field, including travelling for egg donation and the emerging field of epigenetics.

This book will be valued by all those considering or undergoing donor conception, as well as the range of professionals who support them, including infertility counsellors, psychologists, therapists, and social workers. The authors draw from different and complementary areas of expertise - Glazer is a counselor and infertility coach and Sterling is a public health specialist and medical ethicist - to provide  simple, clear, and sensitive  information and advice.
