Embryo Donation As A Family Building Option

May 9, 2013

Boston IVF has received a two-year, one-million dollar grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to increase patient awareness of embryo donation. There are currently more than 600,000 embryos frozen in the U.S., a result of IVF cycles where excess embryos are created. Options for patients who have excess embryos and have completed their family building are: donate the embryos to research, discard them, continue to freeze them, or donate the embryos to another individual or couple. The study will research patient attitudes and awareness on embryo donation and develop a program that will influence other fertility practices to support embryo donation.

Emotionally Preparing for Take Your Child to Work Day

April 19, 2013

Take Your Child to Work Day is April 25, 2013. It can be a fun bonding experience for parents and their children, but for individuals or couples who are still struggling to conceive, it can be a painful reminder of infertility and a marker of passing time.

Similar to child-centric holidays, baby showers, and birthday parties, it may be difficult to cope with the reminders of infertility on Take Your Child to Work Day. It is best to prepare for the day with positive thoughts, responses to family building questions, and a plan to give yourself a much needed break.
