Embryo Donation Pennsylvania
When you feel compelled to assist another family who has been longing for a baby, you may be looking into the various ways you can help make someone else’s dreams come true. Through third-party reproduction, including surrogacy, sperm donation, egg donation, and embryo donation, families across the state on Pennsylvania have been given a fresh opportunity to become pregnant.
Single women, LGBTQ couples, couples who have been unable to achieve a healthy pregnancy, and women who for any reason whatsoever do not wish to physically become pregnant often seek out alternative options for expanding their families. Embryo donation is one of the best options these individuals and families have in being one step closer to holding their baby.
In Vitro Fertilization and Helping a Family in Need
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the process of implanting a fertilized egg and sperm, known as an embryo, into the uterus of a surrogate mother or woman who wants to expand her family by becoming pregnant.
Embryo donors are typically women or couples who have already been through the IVF process and have additional frozen embryos available for women who want to become pregnant (or for surrogate mothers to become impregnated with).
As a potential donor, you will need to file the paperwork necessary to release your embryos. You’ll also need to consider whether you are interested in an open embryo donation, where you may be able to receive regular updates on the intended parents’ baby born through your donation, or even be a part of the baby’s life in certain situations.
Women who have already successfully undergone IVF and have remaining embryos may even consider the possibility of becoming a surrogate mother who can use her own eggs in a gestational surrogacy arrangement.
Costs and Compensation for Embryo Donation
After spending upwards of $15,000 to obtain viable embryos, you may be wondering what the costs of donation are. Fortunately, there is never a cost for donating your embryos, and there is never an exchange of compensation for donating your eggs. However, if you choose to become a surrogate mother using your own embryos, you can reasonably expect to be compensated.
Your intended parents will cover all of your medical expenses as they relate to your pregnancy, labor, and delivery, as well as provide you with a monthly stipend that will cover your necessary living expenses so you can remain healthy and stress-free for the duration of your pregnancy.
