Embryo Donation is the placement of embryos that are remaining from fertility treatments to another couple that would like to have a child or children. The ‘infertile’ couple then becomes the ‘adoptive parents’ to the donated embryos.
Embryo donation is a great way to ensure that embryos are brought into this world by a loving, stable family and live the great life they were meant to have. Many donating families have some kind of contact with the adopting families and resulting children. Some choose not to have contact; that is all up to the donor/placing families to decide. This is all decided on a case by case basis.
