Jake and Karin have also taken advantage of European Sperm Bank's offer to book a free consultation, where they could get answers to a number of questions. These included enquiries about pregnancy slots and how quickly a sperm donor can be "sold out". The couple had also done a lot of research themselves, which professionals at European Sperm Bank could confirm or deny during the interview.
Jake and Karin already have some favourites among the donor profiles on European Sperm Bank’s website, but are waiting to order the donor sperm until their fertility clinic has decided which fertility treatment is best for the couple. They are hoping to choose a donor in early 2023.
"It’s great that the staff at the clinic are so thorough, but it’s not so great for my patience!" says Karin. She concludes:
“I have learned a lot from this process and I will always go back to a psychologist again later if I need to. If we break an arm, we go to the doctor, but we also have to dare to seek psychological help when it is the psyche that hurts us. My psychologist herself had similar problems in the past and knowing that she could relate to my situation made me feel very safe. She has also reassured me that my feelings for the child will grow as the child grows inside Jake's belly. I'm sure everything will be fine. Right now, I'm just happy and looking forward to everything that's going to happen.”
