About the Embryo Donation

Embryo donation is the procedure to involve the transfer of the embryo to a family who wants to expand their family. The embryo is transferred into a woman's uterus, and if it is implemented in the right condition, the woman will successfully carry a baby in her womb. This embryo donation procedure is ideally beneficial for all those women who are struggling with infertility and express their desire to give birth to a baby. This program helps the patient to experience the journey of pregnancy and labour pain.

During the procedure, the donor must offer a personal and medical family history. They should also provide medical test reports if they have any infectious diseases. If you have not tested these previously, you will be asked to do the same now. 

The embryo you donate will then be kept frozen in the laboratory for several months, depending on the circumstances. After that, it will be transferred to the womb of a needy woman. If the whole procedure is implemented successfully, then the couple can become the successful parent of a kid.
