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 to families looking to adopt.


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

What To Expect When You Donate Embryos

  • 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 adoptive parents.

  • You, as the donors, should contact your fertility clinic and request the paperwork to release your medical records and embryos to the adoptive family's doctor.

  • 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.
