Using an Egg Donor or Gestational Carrier
In this video, registered nurse Nancy Donohue discusses using an egg donor or surrogate as part of an IVF treatment. You may be able to use an egg donor, gestational carrier or a traditional surrogate if you can’t get pregnant using you own eggs or carry a pregnancy to term. You can ask a close friend or family member to serve as a donor or surrogate, or we can help you find one through an agency.
At every stage of working with a donor or surrogate, we prioritize the health and wellbeing of participants and the potential offspring. All donors and surrogates are screened for genetic disorders or predispositions for genetically transferable diseases. We also address the emotional and legal considerations of donation and surrogacy through counseling.
