In the majority of cases, patients who have struggled with fertility issues, with the aid of Assisted Reproductive Technology, have been able to successfully achieve one or more pregnancies and complete their family building goals. However, there are also those who have been less fortunate and have been unable to reach the same success due to finances or other medical hurdles. For this group, embryo adoption offers them a great opportunity to achieve the satisfaction of experiencing pregnancy and starting or adding to a family. There are also those patients who consider embryo adoption as their first choice, as they would rather “adopt” an embryo that would otherwise be discarded or donated to science, rather than choose to create embryos of their own. At Advanced Fertility Care, we strive to be “Embryo Advocates” and help couples/individuals who would rather donate their embryos to individuals/couples in need, so that they too may have healthy and happy families.
We at Advanced Fertility Care understand that Donating Couples/Individuals do not reach the decision of embryo donation lightly. It is our goal to ensure the donation process is as informative and streamlined as possible. We greatly appreciate your compassionate and caring gift and are grateful to be your partner in continuing the joy of a family for others.
Start the process to donate your embryos
Here at Advanced Fertility Care we have an anonymous Embryo Donation Program. Donating individuals or couples will submit a questionnaire listing pertinent medical/genetic information as well as some basic physical characteristics that will be provided to interested recipients. We DO NOT compensate for embryo donation; rather we are providing an alternative to discarding embryos and/or donation to research or science. Prior to embryo selection, Recipients will receive psychological and medical evaluations to ensure that the selected embryos will be going to a safe and caring home. To start the donation process, please contact our office at 480-874-2229 or use the form at the bottom of the page to send a message to our staff and someone will personally contact you to further discuss the process.
Once you have had your initial consultation (either in person or over the phone) with the physician or embryologist, and have been approved to proceed with the embryo donation process, you will be specifically instructed by our staff to complete our online Donor Questionnaire by clicking here:
Once your questionnaire has been received and reviewed, you will receive a call from Advanced Fertility Care to schedule an in-person and/or telephone appointment to ensure completion of any remaining steps in the process, including signing of final transfer consent forms indicating completion of the process. We will mail or email you a complete packet of information and resources relating to embryo donation. Below you will find our Embryo Donation Checklist that outlines the entire process of donation. If you have any other questions or concerns about Embryo Donation, please call the office at 480-874-2229 and we will be happy to assist you further.
Please note, you will continue to be responsible for any annual storage fees due for your embryos until the final consent forms are signed and executed, thereby transferring possession of the embryos to our facility.
