Many people have realized their dream of parenthood thanks to an embryo donation. If you would like to become a parent, you may choose to receive embryos donated by parents who wish to help other people struggling with infertility grow their family. This path gives prospective parents the potential opportunity to experience pregnancy and childbirth.
The Decision to Donate
Countless families have experienced exactly what you’re going through, the strong desire to have a family and willingness to take extraordinary steps to do so. Parents who have successfully conceived through IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and completed their family often find themselves having to decide what to do with their remaining frozen embryos. Many choose to donate them to another couple struggling with infertility. It is a very emotional decision. We recognize the complexity of this decision and can provide guidance and counseling as you determine what’s best for your family.
Embryo Donation Guidelines
Specific practice guidelines for embryo donation have been developed by The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). If embryo donation is something you wish to explore, be sure to check with us as not all frozen embryos are eligible for donation.
