Embryo Donation

You may be in a situation where your best choice of carrying a baby is to receive a donated embryo. Embryo donation may be an option for you if you and your partner have both been diagnosed with untreatable infertility. It is also sometimes used in cases where a woman has experienced recurrent miscarriage thought to be caused by problems with the embryo. Another reason that embryo donation is used is because you or your partner have a genetic disorder and do not want to pass it to your baby.

Embryo donation is a procedure whereby embryos are transferred to your uterus for pregnancy and delivery. The embryos may have been created by other couples undergoing fertility treatment or they may have been created from donor sperm and donor eggs for the specific purpose of embryo donation.

Like adoption, the baby that is born to you will have no genetic link to either you or your partner. However, some couples prefer this option over adoption because it allows them to physically and emotionally experience pregnancy. By being pregnant with the baby, you have control over the baby's uterine environment, diet, lifestyle, and habits. And although no actual genetic link exists, you and your partner will have a very meaningful role in this baby's life as its parents.
