Embryo Recipients

Your opportunity to have your own family, even after you’ve tried all other options.

Choosing to be the beneficiary of an embryo donation is not really different than choosing egg donation or sperm donation. Like an adoption, your child doesn’t share your genes, but they are still your family.

How Does Embryo Donation Work for Recipients

Whether you have exhausted other family-building options, like surrogacy, or you’re looking for an alternative to adoption, choosing to be an embryo recipient means you can still have a family of your own.

What is Embryo Donation?

Many couples try in vitro fertilization (IVF) to create a family. In vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments involve the fertilization of eggs with sperm in a lab. IVF couples would have created a number of embryos in case the first ones don’t take. If fertilization is successful, the embryo is transferred to the uterus.

If the couples are successful in creating a family, or if they choose not to transfer the embryos, they may have frozen embryos remaining.

One of their options for the remaining embryos is to donate them to a couple who have tried other alternate family-building methods without success, or who want an alternative to adoption.

Embryo recipients can choose to transfer embryos to their own uterus or use a surrogate to carry their child to birth.

The entire New Hope Surrogacy team has experienced alternative family building. We know what you’re going through. So we put extra care and compassion into helping you create your family as an embryo recipient.
