For Prospective Embryo Donors...
Many couples find themselves in the position of having completed their families, yet they have embryos cryopreserved from their IVF treatment. They may face the dilemma what to do with these embryos. Options include directing their storage facility to discard the embryos or to donate these embryos to individuals who are willing to receive them. These couples are well aware of the struggles they went through to finally realize their dreams and feel that gifting these embryos to couples who are struggling with infertility might satisfy their emotional, religious or moral needs. The need for donor embryos is great, and we encourage donation of these embryos using programs already in place at ReproTech, the storage company who receives all embryos cryopreserved at MCRH. Please contact ReproTech and ask for information regarding donation of embryos.
