We set the standard in the Pacific Northwest for donor embryos. We maintain our own bank of donated embryos as a safe, healthy pregnancy begins with a viable, healthy embryo and the importance of that cannot be overlooked. We have faith in our egg retrieval, vitrification (freezing), and fertilization process and prefer that our patients use embryos from our lab.
We believe that being actively involved and strongly encouraging of our embryo donation program is a win-win situation: patients with supernumery embryos can give a priceless gift to another couple, rather than paying storage fees indefinitely or destroying the embryos, and recipients benefit from markedly reduced upfront costs as well. Finally, less time is required as well due to as the fact that the embryos are already created and are ready to be transferred.
While we prefer patients use embryos from our lab, we understand that you may have already found donated embryos through an outside source and are looking for a clinic to help you plan your embryo transfer. If so, we’re here to help. We have set forth the following conditions for use of outside donated embryos:
- Access to embryology reports and PGS or PGT-A test results (if done)
- Perform PGT-A (if not previously done)
- Embryos must have been created in the U.S.
We encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our physicians to discuss details and why it’s important for helping you on your way to a safe, healthy pregnancy.
