Team Building for Third Party Reproduction

Third party reproduction is a term that refers to the use of donor sperm, donor eggs or donor embryos by an individual or couple in order to have a child. The term also refers to traditional surrogacy (a surrogate is inseminated for the purpose of conceiving for an intended recipient) and gestational carrier (an embryo created by the intended parents is transferred into the surrogate's uterus).

Confusing, isn't it?

When an individual or couple has ventures down the path of third party reproduction, it is important to understand all of the legal, psychological, emotional and social aspects. Third party reproduction is a complex process; in essence, you need an expert "team" to navigate the road and avoid any pitfalls.

To find out which players you need on your team, read 'Team Baby' and check out Fertility Authority's informative channels on Surrogacy and Gestational Care, Egg Donation, Embryo Donation, and Sperm Donation.
