From Paris with love

Even though our offices are  located in Denmark, European Sperm Bank has a very close collaboration with fertility clinics in more than 60 countries. 

One of the countries, where fertility treatments with donor sperm is not as widely known, is France. 

Because of that, we were asked if we would inform women in France about the possibilities of having the treatment in another country – Denmark for example.

​This became a seminar in Paris, established by the fertility clinic Vitanova.

​One of the participants from this event wrote the following email to us afterwards:“At the first meeting in Paris, we were given the opportunity to learn more about the fertility treatments offered by a fertility clinic in Copenhagen, as well as about the different types of donors. The meeting was co-facilitated by two midwives from the fertility clinic and by the European Sperm Bank sperm donor coordinator.

In a warm and caring environment, the participants could ask all the questions they had, share their experiences and motivations for those who wished, and learn about the practical aspects of insemination, IVF and of the process of choosing and buying donor sperm. A small presentation of the tools used for insemination was also made by one of the midwives.

This evening, rich in exchanges, allowed everyone to leave with a better visibility of the possibilities offered by the fertility clinic and the specific process of the different stages, from the preliminary interview to the birth of the child.”
