      How do I get started?


      Once you have decided to move forward, an appointment will be booked with a LifeQuest physician who will do a fertility work-up to determine if you are a candidate to go through the HERS program. At the follow up appointment when you get the results of all your tests, you will then book an appointment to meet with our one of our suggested counsellors.
