Third Party Parenting
Third Party Reproduction refers to the use of eggs, sperm, embryos, or a uterus that have been donated or provided by a third person(s) to enable an individual (intended parent) or couple to become parents. This includes treatment with Donor eggs, Donor sperm, Donor embryos and a gestational carrier.
Third party reproduction is a very important part of fertility treatment. For women and men who are unable to use their own eggs or sperm, those who want to parent without a partner, and same sex couples – pregnancy may be achieved using donor eggs, donor sperm and/or a Gestational Surrogate (GC) who will carry the baby to term for the intended parent(s). Certain genetic conditions may also necessitate using a third party.
Every patient’s circumstances are unique and require a varying level of oversight and sensitivity. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for men, women, and couples to have a baby, whether it’s through the use of egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation, or using a gestational carrier (surrogacy). We provide and coordinate all the services you will need, including medical, emotional, legal, and financial guidance.
