Third-party reproduction doesn’t need to be complicated. Dr Tween can help you achieve the family you dream of, whether conception is by donor sperm, donor egg or surrogacy. Plus, she can offer pragmatic family building advice for the LGBTQI+ community.
The phrase ‘third-party reproduction’ or ‘donor-assisted reproduction’ refers to human reproduction in which DNA or gestation is provided by a third party or donor other than the one or two parents who will raise the resulting child. It could include conception with donor sperm or donor egg. Surrogacy applies when a separate woman carries the pregnancy for the intending parents. It’s applicable when a woman has a serious medical condition that prevents her from carrying a pregnancy herself, for a single man or for homosexual male couples.
Third-party reproduction was once considered to be socially, ethically and legally complex, but societal norms have shifted dramatically over the past few decades and this form of conception is increasingly gaining in acceptance. Dr Tween loves to help couples dealing with fertility issues and members of the LGBTQI+ community realise their dreams of having a family, and this makes her work as a fertility specialist in Canberra ultra-rewarding.
To protect you, my staff, myself and the broader community from Covid19 infection, all consultation is preferentially done through telehealth. For patients who already have appointments booked, please email my room at email@example.com if you would like to take up the offer of video conferencing or phone consult. I am still taking new appointments but these will also be conducted through Skype or Zoom.
Take care everyone, and stay at home!
