Embryo Donation

Embryo donation, sometimes called embryo adoption, is an emerging option for couples who are trying to build their families.

Embryo Donation Articles

If you’re considering donor embryos, you’ve likely tried various assisted reproductive technologies, undergone hours upon hours of workups, or possibly multiple miscarriages. No matter what you’ve tried, you and your partner’s gametes don’t seem to connect. If you still dream of giving birth, donor embryos may be an option for you.

Embryo donation — also known as embryo adoption from the donor embryo recipient's perspective — is a form of third party reproduction in which the embryos that are left over from one couple's in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle are donated to another person or couple.

If you are interested in donating your embryos or having donor embryos transferred, there are several places you can get started.
