Margaret Russ is a Registered Social Worker with a Master’s Degree in Social Work and specializing in Reproductive Health. Her areas of focus include infertility, miscarriage, third party reproduction, individual counselling and couples counselling. She has undergraduate and graduate degrees in Social Work and conducted research on the impact of male factor infertility at the graduate level. Margaret is a member of the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS). She has also gone through primary and secondary infertility and at the time she found it hard to find someone to help her navigate the complex world of reproductive medicine so she took an interest in the field and hasn’t looked back for the past 15 years.
Margaret’s goal is to provide support to those experiencing the emotional impact of infertility and other life challenges. Counselling for reproductive health issues including infertility can help individuals and couples process their emotions and improve decision making ability, cope with loss and grief and gain insight into the complex psychological issues of assisted reproductive technologies, including third party reproduction.
Margaret conducts third party psycho-social assessments for egg donors, gestational surrogates and intended parents face to face or via skype. She works with all members of the extended community including single intended parents and members of the LGBTQ community.

She has an office in Etobicoke at Royal York Chiropractic and Massage Therapy at 4237 Dundas Street West. Her hours are flexible as she works most evenings and weekends.
