Discover how egg donation can help you take home a healthy baby
The Center for Surrogate Parenting, an Ovation® company, supports both women and men on their path to parenthood. For intended parents who need both egg donation and surrogacy, we proudly partner with the innovative donor egg program at Ovation® Donor Services.
Who needs egg donation?
Together, egg donation and surrogacy offer hope for many people who simply want the chance to bring their baby home at last. Intended parents might need to use donor eggs for several reasons.
Same-sex male couples. Our agency supports all same-sex male couples and single men using egg donation as part of their surrogacy cycle.
Women over age 35. A woman’s eggs diminish in quality and quantity as she ages. As a result, women over 35 might need to consider donor eggs. An ultrasound and blood test can provide more information about a woman’s egg supply.
Parents who have had recurrent miscarriages or failed cycles of IVF. If parents have had multiple miscarriages or multiple failed IVF cycles, they may need to use donor eggs.
Cancer survivors. For some women, cancer or cancer treatment can result in the loss of the ovaries or reproductive function. For these women, donor eggs make motherhood possible.
What happens after deciding to use donor eggs?
Once you decide that egg donation and surrogacy is right for you, it’s time to begin this exciting family-building process.
Selecting an egg donor. Intended parents can browse Ovation’s donor database. They can see photos of egg donors and learn more about their education, ethnicity, interests, personality and family background. All donors have received careful screening for physical, genetic and psychological health, and their eggs have already been retrieved, frozen and stored.
Choose your package. Ovation will consult with you about your family-building goals, and will help you decide how many eggs you need. For example, some people need just enough eggs to have one baby, while others want to plan ahead for future biological siblings.
Place your order. As soon as you order a lot of frozen donor eggs from Ovation, they will be shipped to your fertility specialist right away. Then, when your surrogate is ready, the eggs can be thawed and fertilized with the intended father’s sperm or donor sperm.
Transferring the embryo. The fertility clinic will select the healthiest embryo and transfer it to your surrogate’s uterus.
