Our top priority is to support our patients in having the maximum chance of pregnancy success, with the smallest risks. Women who are 35 and older are increasingly turning to a procedure of single embryo transfer accompanied by comprehensive chromosomal screening (CCS) and enjoying great outcomes. Fortunately, single embryo transfer significantly reduces the risks linked to multiples and is an excellent choice for many patients.
Sunshine helps people of all sexual orientations to build the family they are dreaming of. If you and your partner want to start a family, you may wonder what options you have and how the process looks like. There are two ways for male couples to have a child – using a gestational carrier and traditional surrogacy. At Sunshine, we’ll use your or your partner’s sperm in combination with an egg donated by an egg donor. The egg will be fertilized by IVF and the embryo will be carried by a surrogate mother.
The ability to use the services of an egg donor came as a godsend for many women who have lost their fertility. Many people are aware of the fact that the fertility of a woman begins to decline after she hits the mid-30s. More and more women decide to build a family later in their life; unfortunately, unlike men, their fertility rapidly declines after a certain age and they are unable to have kids.
You may have heard about egg donation – a cousin or a friend have mentioned an article they were reading – and you’ve decided to do some research as well. After spending a few evenings digging for information online, you may have found that you are even more baffled than you were original. No wonder! While the procedure of egg donation itself is not too complicated, it requires a basic understanding of the steps included – and what is being required from you as an egg donor.
If you think of becoming an egg donor, you might feel confused about the whole process and unsure whether you are ready for it. The best way to understand how egg donations happen is to break the process down into separate steps. You apply to become an egg donor. We review your application. If your application is accepted, you make it into our donor database and eventually become selected by intended parents.
Being a parent is not a walk in the park, to begin with. But when it comes to explaining to your child how they arrived into this world, the task appears nothing short of overwhelming and is being dreaded by many parents. On the other hand, you cannot postpone this fundamental conversation indefinitely, it will take place in one way or the other and you better be prepared for it.
