Laurel Fertility Care is here to provide you with some helpful insights into the donor egg and embryo process and what you can expect to face. Nothing should prevent you from having the family of your dreams and preparing yourselves for any obstacles along the way will ensure that you’re ready for anything.

Before examining the potential cost of third party reproductive services, something important to understand is why donor eggs and embryos are crucial to the development of new family units.

No matter what the circumstances may be, the advancements surrounding donor eggs and embryos has allowed for some incredible stories to unfold. Both heterosexual and gay couples have found success with donor eggs or embryos, and knowing what progress can be made allows for a more open-minded acceptance of standard procedures and final price points.

Donor Egg & Embryo Program

Egg donation is a treatment option for women whose eggs are unable to achieve a successful pregnancy.  At Laurel Fertility Care (LFC) we encourage women to potentially utilize donor egg when faced with primary ovarian insufficiency (POI), menopause, diminished ovarian reserves, or genetic diseases, in order to achieve a healthy pregnancy for themselves or with a gestational carrier.

Research also shows that women over the age of 40 may choose to use a donor egg or donor embryo to avoid complications that may come along with giving birth later in life.

Our donor embryo program consists of donated embryos from prior patients who have completed their family and have chosen to donate their remaining cryopreserved embryos.  Intended recipients are provided with demographic information that consists of age, ethnicity, heigh, weight, medical and family history and more.  This program is anonymous, and the donating couple will not be provided with information on the recipient couple. 

Laurel Fertility Care Offers You Support

Following through with a donor egg or embryo cycle doesn’t have to be a daunting experience to endure. Instead, you and your partner can rest assured knowing that a team of specialists is ready and willing to support you and your needs.

While egg quality deteriorates with age, a woman’s uterus and her ability to carry a child remains relatively consistent.  Egg & Embryo donation offers a significantly higher chance for the delivery of a healthy baby in women with advanced maternal age.
