What is embryo donation?

Your dream for a baby lead you to invitro fertilization. As you near the end of your IVF journey, embryo donation gives you the opportunity to provide the best chance at life to your remaining frozen embryos. Here’s how it works:


Create a profile so people can find you. Your profile can be anonymous for privacy


Search profiles of families looking to receive donated embryos.


Securely communicate with waiting families to find the perfect match for you.

Once You Find A Match

The embryo recipient’s lawyer will typically guide the legal process and the IVF clinic will guide the medical process.

Both families will sign a notarized agreement that relinquishes the rights of the donors to the recipient parents.

You, as the donors, should contact your fertility clinic or storage facility and request the paperwork to release your medical records and embryos to the recipient’s doctor or clinic. Some recipients find it easier to travel directly to their donor’s clinic where the embryos were created, which typically reduces the stress of shipping and varying handling procedures. Ask your clinic if they will accept your recipient as a new patient.

Once the recipient’s clinic gives their approval and all FDA required tests have been completed (if necessary), transportation will be arranged between the storage facility and the recipient’s clinic.

Frozen embryo transfer takes place.

They transferred two embryos and were blessed with boy/girl twins. The fate of the remaining 4 embryos weighed heavily on their minds and hearts for two years until they decided to move forward with Embryo Adoption and connected online with Charis and Duffy.
