The Irish Fertility Counsellors Association

pkhl-counselling-surrogacyMost international bodies and clinics strongly recommend professional counselling for those pursuing surrogacy as a route to parenthood. We support that view.

Counselling with a suitably qualified counsellor with training and experience in this area can be an invaluable help and support to couples. We recommend that any couple that feel they would benefit from fertility counselling should make sure the counsellor has proper training and qualifications and is accredited by a reputable organisation which ensure the continued professional development of its members.
